inside a codebehind file i build a string containing the <asp:xml> tag... with attributes inside etc.

then output that string in .aspx page as <%=strASPTag%>

the problem is that it is not resolving the tag... it just prints it out as plain text!

the string is being set like this in the codebehind:

strASPTag = "<ASP:XML ID='XMLContent' DOCUMENTSOURCE='../Foo.xml' TRANSFORMSOURCE='../Foo.xslt' RUNAT='server' />";

should i be using double-quotes instead of singles? if so, do i need to use some escape character?

thanks...

Your string is alright, only problem is that ASP.Net is not prcessing your asp:xml server control. It emits the string as is.  All the server side control processing takes place at page load time. By the time you are trying to add asp:xml control using your technique, it is not processing the string as a server side control. It emits the string as any HTML tag.
If you want to add a asp:xml control at some location, use asp:PlaceHolder contro.. And then in your code behind, you can add asp:xml control to this place holder programtically.
