    the file extension or even the url does not matter, as long as it sends the correct type (xml), encoding (utf-8) and of course content.

    you can also name the file .xml and put an apache (or IIS i suppose) directive in that executes the file as asp.

    or you can have asp write a static xml file

    or u can just leave it as google doesnt really care

    The answer to your question is yes you can. Ii did it to my site www.CellUp.com and it worked. Google seen my .aspx file as a .xml file. But for this i had to use a rewrite rule for my sitemap URL. I renamed my sitemap_index.aspx file as sitemap_index.xml.
