Hi.  I have a couple of webpages I created using Dreamweaver and saved them as html pages and now I have to change them to aspx pages.

Can I just rename the pages from htm or html to as aspx pages and work with them in visual studio. or cut and past the html page code in an new aspx page?

Is there a converter to change a html page into a visual studio page?

Any info would be helpful,

Hi cesemj,

Yes. The simplest way to convert an HTML page into an ASP.NET page is to copy the HTML file to a new file with an .aspx extension.
By the way, you still can re-use the existing htm/html pages if there are no any reason for you to convert them to aspx page.
Before the conversion, make sure you have define the clear architecture of the application based on the installed framework that required.
