Actually, I was wondering whether the try-catch-finally clause is part of each
language, or part of .NET itself. Unless .NET has its own versions that will
never be released anywhere else, then these constructs would be available
outside of .NET... like maybe for "classic" ASP or even client-side scripting,
assuming someone makes an engine available.
