Upgrading SQL 2000 to SQL 2005

We are looking to upgrade our Intranet database from Microsoft SQL 2000 to SQL 2005. We wanted to know if we have to worry about deprecated datatypes in our coding or that should not be an issue going from 2000 to 2005?

Any assistance offered would be greatly appreciated.

I started looking at that but I did not see any mention of deprecated datatypes. Does that mean it is not an issue?

Right. This is our Intranet database that has SQL, ASP.NET, VB.NET and some HTML written into it. We should not have any SQL deprecated datatypes when we upgrade just from SQL 2000 to SQL 2005 on the save server?
