When I visit a website, how to figure out whether its an html, jsp or asp ?
I looked at the view source, but was unable to figure that out. Is there anywhere in the source code does it say what kind of page is it ?

These technologies all reside on the server side, and all put out HTML code. It is this HTML code that gets sent to the browser. So no, as a client you can not tell what the server side is using reliably.

The extension may give you a hint (e.g. php, php3, php4 is PHP, asp is ASP, aspx is ASP.NET, jsp and jspx are
, htm and html is HTML), but that's not foolproof:
If your URL points to a "folder" and a default document is used, there is no extension
, mapping rules can map a URL ending in .html to a JSP file or servlet
Other forms of URL rewriting can do the same
