The moment I get close to being able to write the tag <channel> in asp it goes very wrong

Response.Write(chr(60))
Response.Write(chr(99))
Response.Write("hannel")
Response.Write(chr(62))

is there some issue with the word channel?

Cheers

Ok it looks like channel is a reserved word. So how do i go about using reserved words?

I'm pretty sure that channel isn't a reserved word. Is there a reason you are priting it out like that?

By using the Response.Write method, you are just sending the text to be outputted as HTML. ASP shouldn't care at all what's between your quotes, as long as it's syntactically correct.

thanks for your responses

First off I tried to print

Response.Write("<channel>")

so i assumed wrongly that the < was the problem. Afet rmuch messing arounf I found it was not, I can writre everything as long as the word does not read channel

If it is not a reserved word, whatis going on

This works fine:

Response.Write("<[channel]>")

Try this: response.Write("&lt;channel&gt;")
