Dennis, Alan, Mike... help?

According to the HomeSeer (I'm trying to trigger events on the HomeSeer 
application) documentation I do not need to use ASP. The simple HTTP command 
should be accepted directly from a HTML page.

Here's the page in the online manual for Homeseer with the info:

HomeSeer info on Controlling Devices from HTML - 
http://www.homeseer.com/support/homeseer/WebHelp/web_access/controlling_devices_and_events_from_your_own_pages.htm


I appreciate the assistance.
