how to write Server.HtmlEncode

I am trying to validate this page: http://roofgenius.com/test2.asp
called from this page: http://roofgenius.com/test.asp
Evidently I need to add Server.HtmlEncode somwhere in this code:
 <% name = request.querystring("name")
  response.write "Dear: "& name & ",<br />Thank you for sending us the following:"
  comment = request.querystring("comment")
  comment = Replace(comment, vbcrlf, "<br />")
   response.write "<br />" & comment & "<br /><br />If you have asked us to contact you, we will be using the following email address:<br>"

  email = request.querystring("email")
  response.write "<span class=""redbold""> Email : " & email & "</span><br /><br />"
   %>
    If any of this information is incorrect, please click the back button and change it.
We thank you for taking the time to help us be a better company.<br />
    <br />    
      Sincerely, <br />Manager, Roof Genius Customer Support

This is what htmlencode does http://www.w3schools.com/asp/met_htmlencode.asp

Are you trying to validate your final html code or validate input?

What is the specific error you are having?
