Also remember... when using ASP it is really easy to assume that "the client is using Microsoft Windows(R), Of Course." Microsoft would love for you to assume that, but it's not a safe assumption; not at all.
When designing applications for the web, I strive to produce systems that require as little client-side programming as possible; that's usually "none at all." This is what creates a truly portable application, hence the greatest number of potential customers who can actually use the site.
The world is full .. and always will be .. of "non Windows" platforms, and plenty of competitors are just a click away from your own URL. Obviously this does not apply so much when you're building an internal-only (intranet) application, but even in that case I think that this way of thinking produces better, longer-lasting code.
<% depicts the opening of server side code %> is the end of server side code
.... of course this
<%@ Language="VBSCRIPT" %>
defines the language of the ASP page and must be at the top of the page (but not under .net(u can have multiple instances with .net))
<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="VBSCRIPT> here </SCRIPT>
is client side
to chop and change between the 2 modes (client server) u just use <% and %>
eg (sorry this example is in jscipt, but for the sake of showing client/server integration, it is exactly the same
<%@ Language="JScript" %>
<TITLE>CSV to graphics</TITLE>

file = fso.OpenTextFile($doc, 1, true);
data_array = $data.split(",");
