MasterPages in ASP.NET 1.x

Just discovered the MasterPages support for ASP.NET 1.x, thanks to Andy
with 4GuysFromRolla.  I haven't used it yet, but the reviews look
very good.  I think I can use it to replace my homespun
MasterPages code.  That could be nice.

WebMethods GLUE

WebMethods GLUE, which MSDN pushes as the tool of choice for Java to
work with WSE on the .NET level, appears to be incompatible with the
latest version of Microsoft's WSE toolkit.

I have successfully
signed and encrypted messages to and from a web service using .NET in
C#. The struggle remaining seems to be password validation and
encryption of username and password. Then of course getting these new
WSE extensions working on other platforms so that clients using other
languages and platforms can still call my newly protected web service.
What good is a web service that can't be accessed at all?
