    I have created a "tag board" in VB and I would like to put on my website. Is there a way to put VB code into an HTML document?

    like so:

    Code:
    <script language="VBScript">
    
    'Insert your client-side VB script here
    
    </script>

    Client side means it's performed by the user's browser (eg JavaScript). The opposite is server side, which is done by the server (PHP, ASP etc).

    I'd also like to note that client-side has a slower download and in most cases is slower than server-side.

    If I have javascript or VBscript on my page, it has to send you the code, then you have to parse it on your pc. If I use server-side, it parses it on my server, and sends you the output.

    Also, server-side code is more efficient and works on a wider range, as client-side can be disabled in your browser, as well as the little support and bugs known in code made for client-side.

    Sorry if that is confusing, just elaborating on james' statement.

    Also, client-side VBScript is different than server-side VBScript, in that it has different inate objects and no ASP objects built in.
