aspx is not straight html code, it must be compiled, whether thats at runtime or precompiled

you can right click on your file in visual studio and click view in browser, this will launch the vs asp.net host to allow you to view it, otherwise you need to publish to iis to view it


hey thanks a lot
it worked..... thanks for your guidance....i really appreciate your help


try creating a new web project and copy your helloworld html code into default.aspx file of the newly created project i hope it helped
