(there are people on this list who were indeed waiting for this ;) )

IIS4 caches the ASP page if and only if there is only ASP code in the page.
The page is *not* cached if there is a mix of ASP and plain HTML. In other
words, your include file which contains nuthin but functions will get
cached, but your default page where you have some random response.writes
here and there will not.

--Which leads to a good programming practice: Separate code and content.
