ASP stands for Active Server Pages.

ASP files are like HTML, only they have some scripting included, which is processed on the server. These script are executed on the server before the page is send to the browser. ASP is developed by Microsoft, and it requires some additions to the server, of course the MS servers (IIS, PWS) can work with it, I don't know about any ohter servers that support ASP.

The scripting part of ASP is between
<%
and
%>

compare it with the <script> and </script> tags for javascript

As the scripts are executed on the server, the script itself is not send to the browser, only the result. With ASP scripts among others connections to databases can be made. I think this connection to databases is the most frequently used functionality of ASP. But it has many other possiblities.

The default scripting language in ASP is VBscript, but also Javascript and even Perlscript can be used.
