My suggestion is PHP because it is cross-platform... ASP SOMETIMES works in other browsers other than Internet Explorer, but more often the pages return errors or show up strangely in other browsers.

PHP will work regardless which browser you use.

Also ASP only works on windows servers, so there is a greater chance that if you move server PHP will work over ASP because PHP works on anything.

And since it is more popular PHP is easier to get help with.

Thanks I think I'm going to learn PHP after I learn CSS. And Michael that tutorial you wrote helped a lot. Its a little more straightforward than w3schools is. Eventuall I'll learn ASP and I know a guy who uses it a lot and he wouldn't mind helping me.

My personal preference is PHP for all its cross platformy goodness.
