What is the difference between .htm and .html?

I would like to learn more about HTML coding and ASP coding, or scripting. I"m new to this, and I hardly even know what scripting is and what is for.

What I need is a good link which can teach me about the basics or stuff bout the related topics mentioned above.

Could anybody help m,e out here? I'd be very very grateful!

There is no difference between .HTM and .HTML - They are just the file extensions for an HTML file.

.ASP extensions however are HTML files that contain ASP code, usually written in VBS.

Good links..... hmmm..... well, check the thread in the Tutors Corner and Code Library - there's some Sticky one's in there that contain lots of generally helpful links.

http://www.asp101.com isnt bad, the people on the forums there can be quite helpful, however, the ASP forum on this site is great as you usualy get a decent reply within a few hours

You can try http://html.tucows.com/

When I first started learning HTML, this site was a huge help. Also, some people have mixed feelings about "Dummies" books, however the "HTML for Dummies" book is absolutely great for beginners.

In all reality, you need to know HTML before you can script with ASP. This is because ASP is, more-or-less, the dynamic creation of HTML.

To get yourself up and running, I would concentrate on learning how to generate and format HTML tables. This is the best way to consolidate and organize the information that is piped out from the ASP engine. All of the other aspects of HTML can really be learned on a need-to-know basis as they basically deal with asthetic aspects.

Some sites that I have found really useful for ASP are (in order of helpfulness):
