    which way should I go with ASP: Jscript or VBscript?


    Which language works best with ASP? Is it J script or VB script? Can you
    give me reasons?

    Thank you.

    There's so little difference in execution speed that the choice is primarily
    one of personal preference. While there are more examples of server-side
    code available in VBScript, the advantage of being able to use JScript on
    both the server and client is significant. JScript is somewhat more compact
    than VBScript; however it's case-sensitive, whereas VBScript is not. After
    learning either one, it's relatively easy (if somewhat irritating) to switch
    syntax and learn the other. I suggest you learn them both so you'll be able
    to take advantage of all the examples and code available.

    There are actually at least 4 languages you can use to write ASP. See one
    discussion of pros and cons here:
