      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
                  context.Response.Write( context.Application("ConnectionString"));
                  
                  
            }

            // Override the IsReusable property.
            public bool IsReusable
