::: The original post asked for a way to have ASP in a .js file
::: which insinuates that a separate (JS) file is a necessity.  IMO,
::: this is bad from the get go in every scenario I can envision.

: Because from the description in the original post, it sounds like
: he is building core functionality for the site utilizing client-
: side scripting.  Being a standards advocate, I think this is bad.
: If you can't do something any other way than on the client-side,
: then you should rethink your strategy as to offer equal access to
: any client, not relying on its capabilities or lack thereof.


What is "non-standard" about using client-side scripting to power a
drop-down menu?
