I have a page where i'm populating a dropdown list from a database.  Right now the code behind file only reads the form values and then changes a label to show those values.  The label is not getting changed and the page acts differently in firefox 3 and internet explorer 7.  In firefox, the page just doesn't do anything, in IE7 i get the following error message:

/*****
Invalid postback or callback argument.  Event validation is enabled using <pages enableEventValidation="true"/> in configuration or <%@ Page EnableEventValidation="true" %> in a page.  For security purposes, this feature verifies that arguments to postback or callback events originate from the server control that originally rendered them.  If the data is valid and expected, use the ClientScriptManager.RegisterForEventValidation method in order to register the postback or callback data for validation.
*****/

I don't understand why this is not working, I simply want to read the 4 form values and insert them into a database but I like to check as I go and it's not even working right now.

it<s because you have html tags within the content of your form (the data).

First, you could try to remove the "<br />"

Thanks davrob60 - me being an idiot and not mentioning other parts of the site, I'm using master pages and the form tag was already in the masterpage file w/ runat=server.  I removed the form tag from this and it works perfect.  Thanks for the info!
