No it isn't. You can use JavaScript or even perl in asp. You can use
either as a cgi. I guess as Javascript can be wrapped into a com object
or scriptlet it should be possible to use it as an isapi filter or
extension but if you are going to do that you might as well use

You must have had some strange xml and stylesheets. It is not always the
