Well, the double quotes inside as well as outside the attribute are indeed a problem in this situation but I just tried it with single quotes and that works fine for me:
    <form id="form1" runat="server">
    <div>
        <asp:SqlDataSource ID="SqlDataSource1" runat="server"
            ConnectionString="server=.\SQLXE2012;Database=ee;Trusted_Connection=Yes;"
            SelectCommand="SELECT * FROM pix"
            />
        <ul class="mylist">
            <asp:Repeater ID="Repeater1" runat="server" DataSourceID="SqlDataSource1">
                <ItemTemplate>
                    <li>
                        <asp:Label runat="server" ID="ID" Text='<%#Eval("ID")%>' />
                    </li>
                </ItemTemplate>
            </asp:Repeater>
        </ul>
    </div>
    </form>
