if I try to set the NavagateURL in the code behind,


<asp:HyperLink NavigateUrl="./editauto.aspx?prod=1&group=234" />
I get this:

the page rendered shows: ./editauto.aspx?prod=1&amp;group=234

how can I get it to stop changing "&" to "&amp;"

thanks

You're not supposed to, that is the correct way to do that.  The server is supposed to change it back automatically.  Is it causing you an actual problem on 'editauto.aspx'?

I think the problem is in visual studio. It seems to work intermittently.

Interesting.  It's known that the 'web server' in Visual Studio is not as complete as IIS or Apache.  Anyway, thanks for the points.
