Default VBscript or jscript


I was thinking of doing a web based application, which would take in some inputs, and do a bit of maths on the inputs and come out with an output.

e.g. taking in 4 inputs a,b,c & d, and the output would be something like


all these computations taking place on the webpage,

would it be best done in vbscript or jscript or any other language.

Send a message via AIM to jcortes

i would say you should use PHP if your web host supports the server side script. I think that PHP is better than java or vb and it is getting more popular in web design.
