Binding to email in repeater

I have the code below but it's not binding correctly. It's in a repeater. It binds as such:

Email: < %# Bind("Email") % > 

That's actually the display. I bet i'm missing a single quote somewhere but i dont know...
<tr>
                    <td width="137"><label for="email_address_staff">Email:</label></td>
                    <td width="310">
                    <asp:HyperLink NavigateUrl='< %# Bind("Email", "mailto:{0}") % >' Text='< %# Bind("Email") % >' runat="server" ID="hlEmail"/>
                    </td>
                    <td width="280">&nbsp;</td>
                  </tr>

Sorry, just realized the link is exactly the same as yours. What do you mean it is not binding correctly?

Just fixed it. Yes, i got mine also from that link. But this time, it works! I changed the double quotes and now it's fine:


<asp:HyperLink NavigateUrl='<%# Bind("Email", "mailto:{0}") %>' Text='<%# Bind("Email") %>' runat="server" ID="hlEmail"></asp:HyperLink>

There should not be any space between "<" and "%".

<%# ...

Not

< %#
