Default How do I...

...change what is displayed in the browser URL. Can this be done?

I'm kinda confused as to how/if I can do this with ASP.

Do you mean the address bar? If so you cannot change it from asp. It shows the url of the page you're on (or containing frameset).

Yeah, the address bar. There's nothing I can do to display somethinge else?
Can I change the HTTP Response header or something?

Can I do it with any other language.

The only language the browser understands is HTML and whatever client-side scripting language it supports (javascript, vbscript[in I.E.]).

The address in the address bar is the URL that the browser has requested. It's set before there is a reponse back to the browser so you can't modify it with headers.
