Hi Karen

One interesting thing about those articles is that they are quite old now
and there is one major area where the old rule of thumb is no longer
ncorrect, and that is avoiding mixing your ASP with HTML.  Some of the
articles, for example the MSDN one strongly suggest you avoid this.

"Keep blocks of ASP server-side script together, rather than switching back
and forth between server-side and client-side code. This switching usually
happens when concatenating HTML with simple values from ASP, as when you are
writing out an HTML table:"

While this is the case with applications running on IIS4 it's actually the
opposite case for ones running on IIS5.  There's a few articles on 4Guys, of
which this one not only deals with IIS5, but also with applications using



Norman (who's looked back at the hundreds of thousands of lines of code he's
written over the last few years and is not going to be recoding for IIS5)
