Strange observertion in ASP Link

Hi Rick,
Today i was trying out something on my server and noticed something strange:

response.write "< Test" 'works
but if i remove the space character between character < and T, the response.write doesn't work and throws no error.

Even if i change the < character to CHR(60), it still it doesn't work unless i add the space character or any other character in between. Why is this so? How do i go around this? i don't need the space or any other character in between.

I tried leaving the space, then used the replace function later, but the string value just disappears again.

ASP and/or HTML sees it as the start of a tag. You would need to HTMLEncode your text to display brackets on their own. I cover this in ASP 103 and 201.

You're very welcome. That's what I'm here for. It feels good to be back again. I was away for too long due to some health issues, but I love helping out!
