    I would use ASP, only because that is what I have been developing in for about 3 years now.<BR><BR>To set up the db, you wouldn&#039t want tables for each geographic region, instead you would want to "normalize" your db. This means, you would have a table of geographic regions, and then a table of news feeds (which are geographic specific).<BR><BR>HTH<BR><BR>Jerry
