for ASP?  server-side, you mean, right?

if it were client side, i'd say no way... if anything try moving from 
JavaScript to ECMAScript, although that's a whole other 

as for using it in your ASP pages, i use VBScript because it's 
easier to draw on the VB experience in-house, and it's easier for 
me to code different languages for server-side and client-side...
