Context-Type in ASP Result Files

Hi,

I'm creating active server (ASP) pages using visual studio'97 connecting

to IIS 3.0 running on an NTAS PC.  I'm trying to change my context-type
to produce a comma delimited file (text-plain for testing).  No matter
what I write from my ASP file I am always getting the following two
problems:

1) this line is added to the top of my results page:
        <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//IETF//DTD HTML//EN">

2)  All of my double quotes have been changed to &quot;

Is there some type of auto format that either visual studio or IIS is
doing?

Any ideas/comments would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Sheldon

An obvious solution is to manually edit the
specific ASP file.  If you get whatever
program you are using to create the basic
template, and then rip out the extra code
that it has put in.

The addition of this code seems to happen during the  "releasing" of the working copy to the sever.  I beleive that the front page server extensions running on the web server are doing it.  Is there a setting that I'm unaware of?

Frontpage does not play with the actual asp/htm/whatever
files once they have been written.  It does however play
around with them a lot if you use it to design them!

Try opening the .asp file up in notepad, and have a look
at it.  Clean it up manually, and make sure everything is
OK before publishing it.
