Limit equivelent for MSSQL

Props to this site for the answer:
// MySQL limit clause
SELECT emp_id,lname,fname FROM employee LIMIT 20,10

// MSSQL equivelent
select * from (
 select top 10 emp_id,lname,fname from (
    select top 30 emp_id,lname,fname
    from employee
   order by lname asc
 ) as newtbl order by lname desc
) as newtbl2 order by lname asc

"The main thing to remember is to deal with all your ORDER BY clauses and also to use the inner TOP as the sum of what you are looking for. In this example - 30 since you start at 20 and want 10 rows (20+10=30)."
