Converting ASP to HTML

Creating static files from asp

I just purchased a website that was designed many years ago in .asp. Unfortunately, the design is poor and the content is very outdated. I am looking to do an entire site redesign but do not have experience with asp. Of course I would like to keep the link architecture the same because the pages have been indexed by search engines for years. Is there any way I could create static html pages and then just save them as .asp so I will not lose any Google PR? Or am I fooling myself?

Thanks in advance.

Yes, an asp file does not have to contain asp code, if you prefer, you can make an asp file that only consists of static html.

Just save your pages as .asp rather than .html

That should work fine.
