    Whats the difference between calling an application event from a class that implements HttpModule and calling the same application event from the Global.asax? Thanks.

    Global application events happen at the application level.
    IHttpModule events happen at the page level.

    An IHttpModule allows you to take conrol of what page loads on your site. Something that you can't do from Global application events.
