    hi
    here is a little function which can test each date in your task list and change the line color

    <%

    dim color

    function IsPast30(strDate)

    if

    now() > dateadd("n", 30, date_post) then

       IsPast30 = true

    else

       IsPast30 = false

    end if

    end function

    %>

    <html>

    <head>

    <meta http-equiv="Refresh" content=10 />

    </head>

    <

    body >

     

    ' here begins the list of your tasks
    'i suppose that you have a table to list it and that you are in a do while loop sequence 

    ' to initialize the color of the line


    color = #ffffff
    <table>


    <%

    if IsPast30(put the post date here) then

    color = #TheColorYouWant (may be a td bgcolor)

    end if

    <tr>

    <td bgcolor = <%=color%>>task 1</td>

    </tr>

    </td>

    ' you loop here

    </body>

    </html>
