I am creating a simple program in MS Web Developer 2005 express.  Here is my code for the Default.aspx file

<%@ Page Language="VB" AutoEventWireup="false" CodeFile="Default.aspx.vb" Inherits="_Default" %>

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">

<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" >
<head runat="server">
    <title>Untitled Page</title>
    <meta name="IS_ATTR_CompanyName" value="Test Company INC"/>
</head>
<body>
    <form id="form1" runat="server">
    <div>
        <asp:Button ID="Button1" runat="server" Text="Button" />
        <asp:Label ID="Label1" runat="server" Text="Label"></asp:Label></div>
       
       
    <!--I hand wrote this section in -->    
    </form>
   
    <form name="frmTest">
    <input type=button value="test" onclick="document.frmTest.txtValue.value = IS_ATTR_CompanyName.value" id="Button2" />
    <input type="text" name="txtValue" />
   
    </form>
    <!--I hand wrote this section in -->
</body>
</html>

The section that I wrote in successfully displays the value of the meta tag that I am referencing... because its oldschool code that I know how to write. How can I make the button inside of the default.aspx.vb file assign Label.text = IS_ATTR_CompanyName.value? I know I have to access the DOM somehow, but how?
