    Web Scripting

    I'm just wondering since I'm really getting into web dev...

    Are VBScript, Javascript, .NET languages: are they the only languages allowed for the <script> tag in html? Is there any way to add a new language to <script>?

    Then, how do the asp: controls work? On a stay-alive HTTP connection? Anyways, how do I make a new set of controls like the asp: ones that would be platform independent?

    Any help would be appreciated because I can't find anything on it anywhere.

    But PHP is parsed with a PHP server plugin. Anyone can do that. I mean like adding the language as a client-side one.

    im guessing u want to use blue lightning in web development? well that would be impossible since its not a html standard, and browsers wouldnt recognize it, u could create something like php though that would parse it server side....or have a browser plugin that parses it

    Yea, w3schools is the best web tutorial place. I've known it for some while and there's where I learnt my SQL, CSS, XSL and JavaScripts. I recommend it to everyone!

    As for a browser plug-in, arg. Too much of a hassle to handle every browser out there. I guess server-side is good enough with a healthy dose of JavaScript.
