You need to point to File - New WebSite in VS 2005 and you will find the "ASP.NET Website" option for developing Web applications. In VS.NET 2003, you point to
File - New Project for both Web as well as windows applications.It has changed now.
Hope this helps.

I suspect the reason you aren't seeing the icon is because you don't have the VS 2005 Web Application Project installed yet. To install it, please visit this download page:
http://webproject.scottgu.com/Download.aspx You should shut-down VS, then install it, and then restart it. When you choose File->New Project then it will have the ASP.NET Web Application link.
We are going to be shipping an updated version of the Web Application Project which has many more features on the web mid next week (probably Wedesday) -- so you'll probably want to check back then to download a new version of it. You can use the version
that is there now, though, to get started and to convert your VS 2003 application to VS 2005.
Hope this help,

Would like to know what difference will the VS 2005 Web Application Project make in terms of developing web applications using VS 2005.
Currently, we can create Web applications using "File - New Website" option in Visual Studio 2005 Standard Edition.
Please pour light on this.

This blog post provides a quick walkthrough of how the new refresh of the VS 2005 Web Application Project option works:
http://weblogs.asp.net/scottgu/archive/2006/02/05/437439.aspx It will be available on the web for free download later this week.
This website: http://webproject.scottgu.com also provides more details on how the first preview of it worked.
Hope this helps,
