Does anyone know the parameter in the web.config file (in Visual Studio) that will tell IIS to ignore XML characters such as '<' and '>' that users would enter within a web form?

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

You can use XML escaping

connectionString="Server=dbnm;User ID=myDbUser;Password=pass&quot;word"

single quotes for the connectionString as:

connectionString='Server=dbnm;User ID=myDbUser;Password=pass"word'

connectionString='Server=dbnm;User ID=myDbUser;Password=pass&quot;word'
