As you say, it works in JS, so in ASP you could do:
	var = (a == 0) ? 'hello' : 'goodbye';

Unless, by "ASP", you meant "VBScript", in which case no, there's no
direct equivalent. You have to do something like:
	if (a = 0) then var = "hello" else var = "goodbye"
which isn't really the same thing at all, but will do what you want.
