    A lot of what you ask, comes down to design preference, not right or wrong.<BR><BR>A few things I would suggest...Try<BR>look at some of the shooping carts they offer. Downlaod a free one or two, and pick them apart. See what they do, if they have any ideas that you can build on.<BR><BR>Also...If you&#039;re in for a book, try Sam&#039;s Teach Yourself E-Commerce Programming with ASP in 21 Days.<BR>
