Should I/Can I set up my 2000 web server  for ASP Javascript or ASP VBscript? What would be the difference?
The points will go up, possibly substantially, depending on the content of the answer. I will pay fairly...
Thanks,

Windows 2000 (IIS5) web servers will automatically process ASP Javascript or VBScript on the server side as long as the Web site or virtual directory is set to Execute Scripts.

If you are referring to the Client Scripting setting for Javascript vs. VBScript (On the Server extensions tab of the Web Site properties) that would depend on what clients are accessiing the site. That setting determines what language is used when the server extensions generate scripts for client-side execution. If the clients can process both languages then it should not really matter.

Your answer was very succinct. I added 200 points. It probably seems like an easy thing to someone who knows the answer. Unfortunately this server is at another site and I didn't configure it and seldom see it.
Thanks you for a tight answer,
