    Excellent question. I'd love to here other people's thoughts on this too.

    Here are a few of my thoughts:
    • ASP.NET is the next generation of Microsoft server-side development technologies so I guess it is likely to last the longer of the two.
    • ASP.NET is designed to be more secure and it offers more facilities to help the developer with security. This ranges from form validation to logon controls and role membership.
    • ASP.NET code is compiled although this occurs behind the scenes so the developer does not have to compile anything to make this happen. The result is much faster code.
    • Databinding has been introduced. You can develop a web page that outputs data from a table, allows a user to edit or delete rows, allows the user to sort the data or page through the data without writing a line of code. All you need is HTML with web controls (that look like HTML tags with a lot of attributes). Web controls do come at a cost in terms of performance. If performance is critical you can still recert to the ASP model using the Response and Request objects.
    • I can remember writing configuration scripts to secure parts of ASP-based web sites but ASP.NET has text-based XML configuration files. Values can be encrypted too, for better security from hackers.
    • Protection against SQL-injection attacks comes built into ASP.NET.
    ...etc., etc...
