    asp.net, Visual Web Developer & client-side web development

    I'm going out on a limb with this question, so please excuse the possible stupidity:

    I take it asp.net is a language for client-side web development, which can be used with Visual Web Developer, which is a kind of IDE for client-side web development?

    ASP is actually completely server-side, as I understand it. ASP is "called" via HTTP requests to the server, where the requests are interpreted by ASP and the scripts processed after which control is sent back to the browser (client) for further interaction with the user (displaying retrieved data, etc).

    Visual Web Developer is a Microsoft product which is as you said, kind of an IDE for ASP. This is what I gather; I've never used either tool.

    To get an idea of what server-side languages do, the PHP manual has a good "here's how this thing works" section:
