[thelist] Javascript or ASP?

I'd have to agree with Ray here (Server Side), This isn't a complex
computation for the server to perform, so I don't think your saving much
server load.  Even the slowest processors these days can execute millions of
instructions per second.  Sending lots of unnecessary data to the client is
potential much more slower, as far as total response time on the client.

If I had more time I'd run a test, but I think you would find the server
side would win the battle.

Even if it was an external JS file, it would have to be accessed and
downloaded, correct?

Of course, if it _is_ on an intranet, it's not that big of a deal...
however, even locally, large files tend to make the browser a bit
sluggish, even on my nice system (p4, lots of ram, etc.)

Just my 4c.
