Web Service returning dataset for ASP Classic?

I need to create a C# web service that returns a recordset for an ASP classic
applicaiton to consume. My problem is that so far the only thing that I have
found I can return is a dataset using ADO.NET and of course ASP classic uses
ADO and doesn't understand a dataset. Any suggestions??

I would return XML, since that is pretty universal.

Thank you for the suggestion. I have looked at that a bit and as far as I can
tell it is quite a bit of work for ASP classic to read an XML file.

My web service is parsing a long string from a mainframe cobol program into
a recordset (may be 0 to many records) and then returning that recordset to
the asp application.

One thing we are considering is putting the call to the mainframe in the ASP
application and doing the parsing there but I would like to keep that logic
out of ASP.

It must have an XML DOM parser. ASP should be capable of parsing XML, that
seems like a pretty basic thing.
