When you are using server side includes like that you need to use single tick marks instead of full double quotes to surround the attribute values...

For instance,

text='<%# Eval("doc_loc") %>'  

instead of

text="<%# Eval("doc_loc") %>"

Additionally there is generally a better way to do things than to use those ASP classic style server side include tags.  If this is a gridview control that you are utilizing you can manipulate the values of those controls from the code behind in the OnRowDataBound event.

For an example, take a look at this question...
