I have a db with some image and i can see the images with this line of code.
<asp:Image ID="Image1" runat="server" ImageUrl="showImage.ashx?autoId=3"/>

that works, but now i have this code on my main site in a <style></style>
.ie7 #featured-v1,
.ie8 #featured-v1 {
      background: url(add/img/married.png) 0 0 no-repeat;
.ie7 #featured-v2,
.ie8 #featured-v2 {
      background: url(add/img/children.png) 0 0 no-repeat;
.ie7 #featured-v3,
.ie8 #featured-v3 {
      background: url(add/img/group.png) 0 0 no-repeat;
.ie7 #featured-v4,
.ie8 #featured-v4 {
      background: url(add/img/student.png) 0 0 no-repeat;

How can i changes the stylesheet code to use
showImage.ashx?autoId=3   and not     add/img/student.png
so it will use the image from the db in the stylesheet code and not the image from the folder.

background: url(/showImage.ashx?autoId=3) 0 0 no-repeat;

New lines are not encoded like \r\n in text box (not <br/>), so try following:
cmd.Parameters.Add("@img_maintitle", OleDbType.VarChar).Value = txt_imgMainTitle.Text != null ?txt_imgMainTitle.Text.Replace("\r\n", "<br/>") : ""';

I fix it with
<%# Replace(Container.DataItem("img_maintitle"), vbCrLf, "<br />")%>
bc. i can see that if i want to edit the text again then i can get some problems with the <br /> tag there.
But thx alot.
