a link to an asp page
which then I pasted in my browser asked that if I wanted to download a file from that site.The file was in .hta
the code of the file started in
<HTML>
<HEAD>
     <HTA:APPLICATION ID=
and so on.
the same .asp page when I copied it to my site in angelfire.com(it had a option to copy some web content from any site)
I saved it as an .asp
When i typed the url of the asp page(on my website) the browser asks me whether I wanted to download an .asp file.
The question is
why the browser asks
1)to download an .hta
2)to download an .asp
when both the pages have same code(im not 100%sure)?
wat should be done to the code on my site so that the browser also asks to download an .hta
Any confusions or if u want a link to both of pages;
please mail me combinehk@hotmail.com

You will need to use a host that supports ASP,  If you use a server that does not support ASP it will ask you to download the file.

Best of luck

I would recommend that you repost this in the ASP forum under Web Dev. you may get a better response in there. This really doesn't pertain to security issues.
