I have a filtered menu in masterpage that comprises list items that I want to show hide depending on role - see my code snippet below

Regardless of what role I am in all menu options are being displayed.   I am using cassini and all membership and role is setup correctly.

Any answers?
<asp:LoginView runat="server" ID="menu">
        <AnonymousTemplate>
            <ul>
                <li><a id="link2" runat="server" href="~/default.aspx">Home</a></li></ul>
        </AnonymousTemplate>
        <RoleGroups>
            <asp:RoleGroup Roles="admin">
                <ContentTemplate>
                    <ul>
                        <li><a id="link2" runat="server" href="#">Home</a></li>                       
                        <li><a id="link3" runat="server" href="#">Admin</a></li>
                       
                    </ul>
                </ContentTemplate>
            </asp:RoleGroup>
            <asp:RoleGroup Roles="Editor">
                <ContentTemplate>
                    <ul>
                        <li><a id="link2" runat="server" href="#">Home</a></li>                       
                        <li><a id="link3" runat="server" href="#">Admin</a></li>
                    </ul>
                </ContentTemplate>
            </asp:RoleGroup>

ok thanks I will try your suggestion and get back to you.  Does it matter that I am using asp.net development server (cassini) and not setting up via localhost IIS?
