Hi there,

Is your friend already drunk?? ;)

I don't think you'll be able to do this with pure HTML and ASP alone.

To make this work, you need at least a bit of JavaScript to "zoom" at the browser (e.g. resize the image on the fly, creating a perception of zooming) or a server side component that can do the resizing for you.
