Do you mean can I place an ActiveX control on an HTML page which is sent out from a UNIX web server ?

If you do, the answer is yes, in exactly the same way you would as for a NT server.  The ActiveX controls are run on the browser client not on the web server.  Hence you simply place the same HTML code in your pages regardless of the server type.

The content of the ActiveX control will of course only be viewable by users with an ActiveX capable browser (which **usually** means MS Internet Explorer running under Windows).

So basically, it it Micro$oft's version of JavaScript??  If so, yes, then I guess it would work just fine...

Thanks...
