Hello and thanks for viewing my question. I have a database backing an ASP/VBScript web app and have been running into problems when the string values that are read from the DB contain ampersands. The I belive the VBScript thinks the ampersand denotes a concatenation, thereby crashing the system. I haven't really thought too much about it, but the fact that the ASP page is really is an SVG object not a HTML object my have something to do w/ the problem but I doubt it.

I remember running into problems like this when using the DOM, and there was a nice tool where you could specify innerText to avoid confusion with HTML tags in innerHTML, I wanted to know if there is something like this for VBScript in case I run into other special characters other than the ampersand. Please let me know if you should require further explanation or code. Thanks!

You could try using SErver.HTMLEncode(strYourString)

That will output the sting rather than evaluate it.
