I agree.  Your RPG program SHOULDN'T write the html.  That would mean
everytime you want to redesign your pages, you need to recompile.  It also
means your RPG programmer has to be your web deveoper too, or atleast have
extremely good communication with him..

Your RPG code should just return straight data.  Then you have your ASP page
actually do the formatting.
