in my aspx file i am using asp:hyperlink

            <asp:HyperLink ID="link" runat="server" Text='<%# XPath("@id") %>' NavigateUrl= 'Sectionlayer.aspx?file=  <%# XPath("@Path") %>'
                    Font-Names="Verdana" Font-Size="X-Small"></asp:HyperLink> |

and getting the error "the server tag is not well formed".
without - Sectionlayer.aspx?file=  part i am getting the Xpath value correctly.
there is some problem in quotes can u plz let me know where am i going wrong.

this hyperlink i am using in a repeater control to create a dynamic paging with html files linked to it.
can u also show some good paging samples with numeric pages and  previous and next button.with good hover and link visited hyperlink button style. In the format as below:

previous  1 2 3 4 5 6 7 .... 10 20  next.
<asp:HyperLink ID="link" runat="server" Text='<%# XPath("@id") %>' NavigateUrl= 'Sectionlayer.aspx?file=  <%# XPath("@Path") %>'
                    Font-Names="Verdana" Font-Size="X-Small"></asp:HyperLink> |

Try to add those attributes in the event "OnitemBound" event of the repeater control. So that can easily form the URL in the code behind.

Again in ItemDataBound event of repeater i would have faced the same problem in assigning value for the queystring file to Xpath.as the problem i thought was in incorrect quotation mark that i had put.

So i got the solution and it is :
NavigateUrl= '<%# XPath("@id", "article.aspx?file={0}")%>'

Thanks for all ur help i appreciate the valuable time you had spent on figuring this out.
