Hi nirisan,

When you want quotes to appear within the string, enter them twice within the string, such as this:
str = "<p style=""margin: 0px; font-weight: normal;""> {1}</p>"

Dim str as String
str = "'<p style=""margin: 0px; font-weight: normal;""> {1}</p>'"

FYI, MasterPage I think nirisan needs the opening and ending single quote in the string too.

thanks,

I am compiling without errors but it renders as text on the page.
Here is how i gave it with 4 double quotes per double quote. But how do i set it for the browser not to display as html as it is a property for the style. Below are tow variables i am using.

var = "'<p style=""""margin: 0px; font-weight: normal;""""> {1}</p>'"
var1 = "'<p style=""""margin: 0px; font-weight: normal;""""><img src=""""http://images.mysite.com/static/images/mark.gif"""" style=""""margin-left: -8px;"""">{1}</p>'"

how do you add this variable in to the page?
if you are setting innerText of some element then change it to innerHTML
or add as LiteralControl
this.Page.Contols.Add(new LiteralControl(var1))
