I am beginner level with IIS (specifically for me, IIS 10.0), and thanks to previous question and answer here, I am making good progress.
Now, I want to configure IIS so I can generate a web page with output from a Visual Basic Console Application that I write. I believe my options are CGI (old?), ASP.NET (not the latest?) or ASP Core (new?). As I do not have experience with any of these options,
I believe I should start with the one favored by community here.
My Visual Basic Console Application will generate a set of lines of text that together make up a simple HTML web page, such as:
Hello World <br></body>
My Visual Basic application would look like this:
Console.Write("<!DOCTYPE html>")Console.Write("<html>")Console.Write("<body>")Console.Write("Hello World<br>")... and so on ...
So my basic questions follow:
Thank you very much for any pointers!

Serving HTTP requests with a console application was the ancient CGI, which is neither secure, not performant. Nobody does that any more even before 2000.
Please spend some time learning things like ASP.NET Core (ASP.NET 4.x is considered legacy right now),
