HTML pages don't allow for server-side scripting so I suggest renaming any HTML pages with an .ASP extension. ASP pages should work by default. If you're getting an error messaging indicating that an ASP page cannot be executed, launch the Internet Services Manager. Now view the properties for the virtual directory that contains your ASP pages. Select the Home Directory or Virtual Directory tab. At the Execute Permissions drop-list, select Scripts only.
