As Dave pointed out, prior to .NET, ASP meant Active Server Pages. It's
basically the Microsoft equivalent of PHP -- you write scripts in VBScript
that run on the server and output HTML. Despite Microsoft's extensive .NET
marketing, there are still many, many sites and systems built on plain ASP,
since many people feel upgrading to .NET is too expensive.
