Microsoft VBScript compilation (0x800A0408) Invalid character

I'm no expert in asp and vbscript but not a total beginner. I've got some
VBScript in an asp page which is generating a forumla for use in Lotus Notes
replication.

The line that it is objecting to is
<% if user2 <> "" then response.write( "| @IsMember(&quot ;" & LCase(user2) &
"&quot;;@LowerC ase(@Name([CN];AssignedTo)))" ) end if %>

i.e. if the string user2 is "Mike" I expect the HTML to be
| @IsMember(&quot ;mike&quot;;@Lo werCase(@Name([CN];AssignedTo)))

and the display in the browser to be
| @IsMember("mike ";@LowerCase(@N ame([CN];AssignedTo)))

The server responds
Error Type:
Microsoft VBScript compilation (0x800A0408)
Invalid character
/6500/notes_atform.as p, line 25, column 57
if user2 <> "" then response.write( "| @IsMember(&quot ;" & LCase(user2) &
"&quot;;@LowerC ase(@Name([CN];AssignedTo)))" ) end if
--------------------------------------------------------^

i.e. it is the semicolon on the first &quot; that it doesn't like. Why not?
It is part of a string in quotes?

I thought getting rid of the &quot; by using ...IsMember(" & chr(34) &
LCase(... instead, but I now get the same error but at the ampersand before
the LCase().

I guess I'm missing somethign obvious. Please help!

When the ASP statement end with a _ character, then the next line cannot have comment ' character. Is that correct?

That subject packs a whallop, so let me explain in better detail what's happening and how it relates to ASPX pages... In a nutshell, if the first <script /on a page is of type "text/vbscript", you cannot use inline JavaScript statements that call setTimeout with functions that start with a double-underscore. This is very relavant to ASPX (ASP Dot Net) pages because it means that AutoPostBacks will fail since they generally call the...

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>". The problem is that using the GNU compilers, it seems that the internal comparison operator "<=>" tries to promote arguments from unsigned to signed. This is as boiled down as I can make it.

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
