>Can I scrounge some technical advice from you all? I am keen to learn a programming language for writing ASP scripts. So far I have been advised to learn VBScript if I want to do this, and consider JScript as well if I want to develop for client-side.
Yep - Thats about right. As ASP's are Microsofts Baby, and run on Microsoft Information Server - your best bet is in fact VB Script for the server side of stuff (as well as being a lot easier, IMHO, to program in and link to Activex objects for accessing databases, send email etc...
It would make sense to just learn a single language and use it on both the client and server sides. But heh, such is life...
>Jim/ Max/ other experts, what do you think? I don't want to make a huge mistake because of ignorance. Can you guide me to any useful info/ resources on the Net which you have found useful? Being a complete novice to this, all help/ comments/ criticisms will be gratefully appreciated. Honest!
