Default if and then without end ifs in Classic ASP

    sURL = Request.ServerVariables("URL")

    if InStrB(sURL, "net1.asp") then response.Write "<img src=""images/rules.gif"" />"
    elseif InStrB(sURL, "cancel.asp") then response.Write "<img src=""images/rules.gif"" />"
    elseif InStrB(sURL, "net2.asp") then response.Write "<img src=""images/rules_grey.jpg"" />"
    elseif InStrB(sURL, "net3.asp") then response.Write "<img src=""images/rules_grey.jpg"" />"
    else response.Write "<img src=""images/rules.gif"" />"
Is there a quicker way of coding these lines? I just cant see it ATM.

For my performance management systems that use a traffic light system. I print a color (image name) based the the score (assessment 0=green, 1=amber, 2=red) which is stored in the database. EG. My images are called:
assess0 = green
assess1 = amber
assess2 = red

There fore anywhere in the system where I need to show an assesment color is:
<img src="<%= URLBase %>images/assess<%= getAssess(1) %>.gif" width="34" height="17" alt="<%= getAssess(2) %>" border="0">

I find this method useful, it eliminates multiple if's and is a good time saver. I believe you caould use this process for your needs
