    ASP page treated as plain HTML


    I have a simple ASP page (named iisTest.asp) with these contents (I've embedded spaces in the tags for this post):

    < % @ Language = "VBScript" % >
    < html >
    < body >
    Hello
    < %=World!% >
    < /body >
    < /html >

    When I load the page into IE 6.0 it only displays "Hello". If I View Source from the browser I get all of the above, which means it's not being processed by asp.dll before getting sent to the browser (otherwise I shouldn't be seeing the ASP lines). I asked one of my co-workers to try it and it displays "Hello World!" for him. This leads us to believe the problem may lie with IIS on my machine. (I'm using IIS 5.1.) I checked out my IIS and couldn't find anything that would cause this problem.

    I tried to rename the asp.dll to see what happened but as soon as I did the system put another one in place. I'm running XP Professional.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks!

    <% @ Language = "VBScript" %>
    <html>
    <body>
    Hello
    <%=World!%>
    </body>
    </html>
    Change <%=World!%> to <%="World!"%>, as it is a non-numeric literal, and requires quotes.

    If that doesn't solve your problem, try using the full
    <%
    Response.Write("World!")
    %>

    And you can also remove the @Language directive, since VBScript is the default, and you are using it in your entire script.

    Thanks, but as I indicated, it works fine on another computer but not on mine. (I did add the quotes as you suggested but it made no difference.)

    Thanks for replying.
