How can I display html snippets in a datagrid column?

Hey experts!  I am trying to store html encrypted text into a datagrid column (NOT A GRIDVIEW!!), in a web-based page.

Unfortunately, unless I add 'Server.UrlEncode(DataBind.Eval("MyColumn"))", the text in the column doesn't show up!  And if I add the above urlencode, the text displayed is the gobbledygook text with %'s and such.

Is there a way to display html encoded columns in a datagrid, so that the html code, looks like what you typed in?

Enclose the text in quotes. Use either single or double quotes.

I'm sorry but I don't understand what you mean.  Could you please show a specific example?

Below is a specific column in my datagrid.  Could you change this snippet so the viewing of the grid (not the edit portion--that works fine), displays the html text correctly?
        <asp:TemplateColumn HeaderText="Box Info">
        <HeaderStyle Width="200px" ></HeaderStyle>
        <ItemTemplate>
            <%#Server.UrlEncode(DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem, "Box"))%>
        </ItemTemplate>
        <EditItemTemplate>
          <asp:TextBox Width="200px" CssClass="NormalText" runat="server" id="txtBox" Text='<%# DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem, "Box") %>' />
        </EditItemTemplate>               
        <FooterTemplate>
          <asp:TextBox id="txtNewBox" runat="server" Width="200px"></asp:TextBox>
        </FooterTemplate>
        </asp:TemplateColumn>

Do something like this

"'" & DataBind.Eval("MyColumn") & "'"

Yikes.  I can't seem to get an answer that I can understand...too many, well does he mean, 'this databind' or that one or does he mean inside the <Z% or outside?  Argghhh..  I don't know where to put your snipped.  I have Databinds all over the place as you can see in the code above.  Could someone with clarity (so there is nothing left out) please interpret the above answer?  I will give partial credit to whomever can provide an answer I an use.

Below is the specific expression I am using (as I've already specified above).  Could someone make the magic change that will allow me to view html snippets in my datagrid (not gridview!).

Thanks!
        <%#Server.UrlEncode(DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem, "SearchFor"))%>

And the answer yet again is no.  I would really appreciate if someone actually knows the ansewr--CodeCruiser keeps having me *try* things, but he doesn't know the answer.  I thought the powers that be here frown on people giving people answers when they don't know the answer...

At this point, this question is bulloxed up, because I've had to respond numerous times to wrong suggestions.  I'll keep the question open for another day or so, in hopes that an expert can help me.  Otherwise I'll have to close this, spend the time opening up another question.   Ack.  No more 'suggestions' please.

Could someone please remove CodeCruiser?  All he does is bollux up questions.  He doesn't know any answers...
