Where can I find Austrian Birth Records for the period around 1900-1910? Are there any on-line?

There is some useful, but not very encouraging, information here -

Note that "Austria" in that period may have meant the Austro-Hungarian empire which was a lot bigger than modern-day Austria. Also it appears, surprisingly, that there was no civil registration in Austria until much later.

Thanks Peter, I can narrow it down to Vienna, so the State Archives may help. The link seems good,but, if only I'd kept up my German studies:)
