Invalid Characters

Hi There… I have one column with datatype text. When I try to edit record form application side and insert “<br>” characters it gives me error:
“A potentially dangerous Request.Form value was detected from the client (mpEdit:txtMediaAttendance="’Test<br>").” But when I enter the same “<br>” from query analyzer it works fine. Any Clue what can be the reason for this?

This is something on ASP.NET (application layer) side, see this blog on relevant informatin. Satya SKJ
