A couple of questions.  

1. Do you know all the function names ("Funcion Uno") beforehand or do
you have to get them from the source xml file?

2. What is the rule to go from Function names (possibly with spaces) to
the .asp file name?  Do yiou have to compute it, or are they already
pre-ordained?  If the latter, you could do a simple lookup table - there
are several ways to set that up, all of them easy.
