    I have written my first "Hello World" program in ASP. I thought I would post here how it is done and ask if anyone can suggest how to incorporate C#.
    The first step was to download the free "Microsoft Visual Web Developer 2005 Express Edition" from microsoft.com
    The next step was to install and run this program. Then create a new web page by clicking on File -> New Web Page. This will bring up this windowL

    From this window, pick "ASP.Net Web Site" and click the OK button.
    Then I edited the Default.aspx file so it reads like this:
    Code:
    <%@ Page Language="VB" AutoEventWireup="false" CodeFile="Default.aspx.vb" Inherits="_Default" %>
    <%
        HelloWorldLabel.Text = "Hello, world!"
    %>
    <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "[URL]http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd[/URL]">
    <html xmlns="[URL]http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml[/URL]" >
    <head runat="server">
        <title>Untitled Page</title>
    </head>
    <body>
        <form id="form1" runat="server">
        <div> 
        <asp:Label runat="server" id="HelloWorldLabel"></asp:Label>
        </div>
        </form>
    </body>
    </html>
    And this works.
    So the next step is to incorporate C# into this "Hello World" program. Can anyone make a suggestion?

    I just got this message:

    while I am learning ASP.NET and getting some sample code.
    How do I go about checking what version of IIS I have?
    Since I already got an ASP program running, I guess I have the IIS covered, right?

    I added IIS as a component.
    like this:

    But now, something strange is happening. It is almost as if I have taken one step forward and two steps backwards. Even the most simple ASP.NET program (one I generate without modifying any code at all) produces this in the browser window when I build it and run it:
