The obvious answer is a Server Side Include tag like:

<!--#exec cmd="some shell command" -->

but that does not work with ASP.

What needs to be done is to create an object (like Server, Response, or Request) that has a method to shell out a command. If you have the Visual Studio tool, it would not be hard to create such an object with either C++ or VB.
