NOTE: You may receive the following error when submitting a search or submitting from a form:
Cannot run the FrontPage Server Extensions' Smart HTML interpreter on this non-HTML page: "http://servername/subweb/default.asp"

You will notice when you submit a form from this type of arrangement that the link on the confirmation page linking back to the form does not display the original .asp page. This is because the form is actually being submitted from the .html page containing the component. As a workaround for this, you can use a custom confirmation page. On the custom confirmation page, you can make a hyperlink back to the original .asp page.
If you are using a search component, the results page will not include the contents of the original .asp page for the same reason as above.
