I am getting this error when using VS 2008 statements in a VS 2012 Website project.

What is the problem and what should I change?

Documentation would be appreciated.

you're missing a double quote before the word "Arial

Should it be:

style= "background-color: #FFFFCC;" font-family: "Arial, Helvetica,  sans-serif; font-size: small;"

Why not:

style= "background-color: #FFFFCC;" "font-family: Arial, Helvetica,  sans-serif; font-size: small;"

try this way, i've created a demo page with dynamic style as you desribed above in vs2010.

.aspx code
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<head runat="server">
    <form id="form1" runat="server">
        <asp:Button ID="Button1" runat="server" Text="Button" onclick="Button1_Click" />

        <asp:Literal ID="MyLiteral" runat="server"></asp:Literal>

.cs code
protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
           MyLiteral.Text= "<table border="+"1px"+"><tr><td colspan="+"2"+"style="+"background-color: #FFFFCC; font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: small;"+"class="+"style2"+">The current day market data is updated each day at 7:00 PM Eastern Standard Time.The Find High Performers and Watch List are not available between 7:00 and 7:30 PM EST.</td></tr></table>";

Thanks, but I found out that these are warnings, not errors.

The warnings have been extensively reported and do not affect performance.
