string temp = File.ReadAllText(Server.MapPath("http://localhost:50647/Prod1/home.htm"));

The above is not working.  Is there a better way?

I want to display the entire htm file as

Response.Write(temp);

Change to this on your current code,
input += Server.HtmlDecode(sr.ReadToEnd());

Open in new window


Another Option,
<%@ Page Language="C#" AutoEventWireup="true" CodeFile="readhtmlInCodebehind.aspx.cs" Inherits="readhtmlInCodebehind" %>

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">

<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<head runat="server">
    <title></title>
</head>
<body>
    <form id="form1" runat="server">
    <div>
    <%
        Response.WriteFile("~/abc.htm");
         %>
    </div>
    </form>
</body>
