I put this key on our web.config so that we can change error messeges from the web.config

    <add key="CategoryRequired_ErrorText" value="You must select a category.  <br><br><b>Please click the back button twice and select a category to continue on.</b>" />

I get this error:  Parser Error Message: '<', hexadecimal value 0x3C, is an invalid attribute character. Line 239, position 143.

can you not put html strings in the web.config appsettings?

You have to escape out the <, >, / characters.  Google on XML encoding.
