ASP "Hello World" program

#1
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:
