Web servers normally send HTML files directly to the client's Web browser in response to HTTP requests. When a browser requests an ASP page, the Web server calls the Sun ONE ASP Server to read through the file. The ASP Server executes the server-side scripts and commands in the page, executes any components called by the scripts, and sends the resulting HTML page to the browser.
