using System;
using System.Collections;

namespace PBControls
      /// <summary>
      /// Summary description for Class1.
      /// </summary>
      /// import System.*;
      using PBSQLData;
      using PBSettings;

      public   class myclass: IHttpHandler
            public myclass() {}

            public void ProcessRequest(HttpContext context)
                  context.Response.Write("<H1>This is an HttpHandler Test.</H1>");      
                  context.Response.Write("<p>Your Browser:</p>");
                  context.Response.Write("Type: " + context.Request.Browser.Type + "<br>");
                                                //Get An Error Here
