The <%# tag takes over the entire property value... which means you can't do "somepage.aspx"<%#...

The good news is that you can make this execute code also... so you can do...

NavigateURL='<%# "Somepage.aspx?file=" + XPath("@id") %>'


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