beginner: why don't these includes work?
please look at the code at http://www.canismajor.net/FC/index.jsp
also if you go to just http://www.canismajor.net/FC/ you will see the "includes" folder to see the top.jsp and bottom.jsp files that I'm trying to call upon. I worked with jsp files a LITTLE. what am I doing wrong? why is it not calling the includes when I view the page? I'm trying to get the top navigation to work dynamically...

Do you have an application server running? It doesn't look like the jsp page is even getting compiled.

Um, sorry, did I say that I'm really new at this?
Application server? So, do you mean that I need something specific running on the server? I uploaded the files to a server where my personal site is hosted, just to test it - it's hosted by an external company (clickhost.net) so I know nothing about the server. I don't have my own server running. BUT - this site if for a friend's company. Should I have her upload the files to THEIR server and see if it works there? They have a full IT dep't so I'm sure they'd know what you are talking about if only we knew what to ask them...

well, I spoke to the IT guy about the server and he said that JSP's won't work there... but that SSI and ASP will. so, since I don't know SSI or ASP, how can I rework the includes/top.jsp into an ASP file and get it working? should I post the code or can you access it from the link above?
THANKS in advance for anyone's help!!!!

more help please?
I honestly don't have the time to learn a new language right now... but thanks for the link. I *will* look into that as the tutorial looks very easy to understand.
Since time is of the essence, what other way can I get the navigation to work, while having it in an include, so that I can set the correct tab to highlight depending on which page you're on? The tabs have 3 states: on, roll, and off. If you want to see the gist of the template, go to http://www.canismajor.net/FC/indexREV.htm
