How to use Notepad to create a simple ASP page
TroubleshootingYou can use Notepad as an HTML or ASP editor if you know how to write code or are simply copying and pasting code to create a page. However, Notepad does not offer any help or tips on how to create these types of pages. If you need this type of editing support, use programs such as Microsoft FrontPage or Microsoft Visual InterDev. These programs also offer site management and publishing tools that can help you organize and publish your site content.
