    Default Think about it...

    Suppose you had your ASP code pop up a message box:<BR><BR>&#060;%<BR>MsgBox "Look at me!"<BR>%&#062;<BR><BR>Now remember, *ALL* code in between &#060;% and %&#062; is going to run ON THE SERVER. As part of the Web server.<BR><BR>So where is that message box going to pop up, if it&#039;s going to?<BR><BR>Hmmm????<BR><BR><BR>......<BR><BR><BR>. ....<BR><BR><BR>....<BR><BR><BR>...<BR><BR><BR>..< BR><BR>.<BR><BR><BR>Yep. On the server. On the computer that is hosting the web site. So now the poor schmuck who is the system admin for the web site will get all these messages popping up on the system computer.<BR><BR>How long do you think it would be before that admin would shut down your site/code? (Personally, I&#039;d guess that it would be as soon as she/he could identify where the silly box came from.)<BR><BR>Suffice to say, you should be *really* thankful that ASP is smart enough to *not* allow you to do that.<BR><BR>***********************<BR><BR>NOW... <BR><BR>The HTML code that your ASP code *produces* ... you know, the stuff that runs in the user&#039;s browser? ... *THAT* can have as many popups as it wants. No different than any other HTML pages.<BR><BR>
