doc.write htmlFile.ReadAll  causes http err 500, why?
This works in local vbscript, the fso part works ( I can response.write that part without err)
I opened up permissions.


Here is the html file http://pswf.net/w/test.html
Here is the url: http://pswf.net/w/w.asp
Here is the code

Dim doc, objFSO, htmlfile

Set doc = Server.CreateObject("HTMLFILE")
Set objFSO = Server.CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")

set htmlFile= objFSO.OpenTextFile(Server.MapPath("test.html"))

doc.write htmlFile.ReadAll

'Response.Write doc.documentElement.outerHTML

set htmlFile = nothing
set doc = nothing
set objFSO = nothing
