I have an aspx page that has a <canvas> control on it. Works fine on my development environment of IIS7 and VS 2010 but when I put it up into my hosting site that has IIS6...the page with the canvas control comes but with "the control is not supported on
this browser"...the same browser (IE10) that was used to develope it ?????
Totally lost here..any suggestions?

The <canvas> tag is an element which is specific for HTML5; used for graphics.
Yet you mention a control, how did you come to conclude that it is a control? It's not something natively supported by ASP, and as mentioned before; normally something between angle brackets is referred to as a tag.
And a tag can be just about anything. Even something non-existant which you can then define yourself in your CSS style definition. However, if you fail to define a non-existant tag and then access said webpage you can get the error you mentioned above.
So I'm tempted to conclude that its not so much an issue of IIS 6 vs. 7 but merely 2 hosting environments which aren't completely equal.

all your thoughts came to nothing as it was an IE compatabilty problem...found the answer through my hosting company.
I need to put the meta tag in to tell IE to use the latest rendering engine:
<meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=Edge"/>
fixed the problem. There was no problem with Chrome or Firefox.
