writing classic ASP code

I've never written classic ASP code.  Can I use Visual Studio to do so?    I have a ASP.NET console app that makes use of a SOAP WEB service.   I need to do the same from a classic ASP page; how can I do that?

You can use any text editor for classic asp.  For soap, you have to build the xml, then xmlhttpost
