Hi all!

I am very proud to announce that the first ASP.NET page with VB.NET has seen the world! It has been compiled and worked fine!

Special thanks to Anirban who has fixed the last bugs in our MBAS compiler and to Rafael who has moved the MBAS compiler in general to a better side!

Here is my test page:
[root at lwezel wwwroot]# cat default.aspx
<%@ PAge language="VB" %>
Hello world of VB!

And this is the output:
Hello world of VB! 

Great, isn't it? :)

Best Regards

Betreff: VB script in ASP page

I am able to compile the generated VB code in mbas.
But when I try to run the ASP page get the following exception in browser.

Server error in '/' application
Description: Error processing request.

Error Message: HTTP 500.

Stack Trace:

System.FormatException: Unknown char: <

in <0x002e3> ExecuteHandlerState:Execute () in <0x00082> StateMachine:ExecuteState

Can I get some help from ASP gurus to resolve this bug.
This looks to me a VBCodeGeneration bug.
Hopefully, this is the final hurdle to run VBScript in ASP.
