Why Microsoft Sucks

encarta.msn.com

Active Server Pages error 'ASP 0221'

Invalid @ Command directive

/encnet/error/500.aspx, line 1

The specified 'Page language="c#" AutoEventWireup="false" ' option is unknown or invalid.

Microsoft VBScript runtime error '800a000d'

Type mismatch: '[string: "."]'

/intl/bver.inc, line 8
