Two thoughts on supporting both NT and Unix: 1. Consider PHP for server-side scripting on Unix, which is similar to ASP on NT. See http://www.php.net/ for general PHP information and http://www.php.net/manual/ref.xml.php3 for XML support in PHP. 2. Consider a distributed app, using Active Server Pages on the NT server as a remote XML module of sorts. For example, you could write an XML/XSL processing application in ASP (accessing the MSXML dll) and then access those ASP pages by way of HTTP from the Unix server - all server side. That way both NT and Unix servers have access to XML processing, you can write XML processing "modules" once and in the environment that makes sense for that module, and you can set it up so that both server types can serve the resulting HTML pages to browsers. The key is that behind-the-scenes exchange of data (using XML of course) allows the XML processing to be distributed across the servers. In fact, this scenario is on my to-do list for later this month. -------- Pete Beazley - mailto:pete@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx ClearlyOnline, Inc.
