    I wouldn't consider ASP and .NET as programming languages.

    Why didn't you add real languages which dynamic content can be easily created with? (Like Ruby, Python etc.)

    .NET is not a programming language. .NEt is a framework, set of libraries and an intermediate code translator.

    PHP is my preferred language though i also develop in Perl, but i also have not used ASP or .NET before, what kind of comparison are you looking for? Mostly web development languages? There are alot of over web development languages people also use java beans JSP servlets java a whole lot more you could add to your poll.

    Cheers

    These aren't technically computer languages. I think the term is 'scripting language' or 'toy languages' as us binary bashers tend to think of them..

    jveleg:
    I do not think any of them are programming languages, since they do not directly compile to machine instructions.

    Real languages - surely assembler fortran cobol pascal 'c'

    Interesting Mega Brain, as id like to see your languages display a page like such :P i believe these are programming languages, but like every language each has there place, whether they compile to machine level language or not. Hence php's place being here on the Science Forum. This forum could be as easily written in perl. I think for a C++ version of this site you would need to have taken the stuff macGyver1986 took in the 80's hehehe. :-D Though then again i shouldn't debate with a master.

    You are quite free to debate, and even correct me if I'm wrong, so far as I know HTML PHP etc are scripts which are interpreted. A traditional programming language is as I stated earlier. These [html] programmes cannot run in any 'standalone' application they require other programmes to support them.

    Following from what Megabrain said, HTML, PHP, Javalets are all scripting languages running server side which simply return a static html page but dynamic to that particular user. (I like that idea) You can use compiled lanuages for HTML generation using CGI you can program in virtually any programming language you like C, C++ =), Pascal, Python and that simply runs the executable and instead of the standard output being the screen its a pipe to the HTTP request made by your machine...

    Debating which is more efficent or useful (client or server side) is something that could go on for years, as when the server load increases the cost of the server does too, but if you stick as much of the code client side you decrease the server load but increase the possibility that certian people wont be able to view your site...

    ASP is Microsoft, PHP is open source
    otherwise they're pretty similar, apart from a few syntax differences
