default radio button in form

P: n/a
Hi all

What I'm trying to achieve is:
I have a form with two radio buttons,
if a visitors check radio button 2 and click submit in the next page
radio button 2 to be check by default

If I use this code

<% If Request.Item("col")="firstcoll" Then Response.Write "Checked"%>

in .aspx page for example like that

<input type="radio" name="col" value="firstcoll" <% If
Request.Item("col")="firstcoll" Then Response.Write "Checked"%>>
(I have try to omit the code and I have try <%@ but still the same)

it breaking the script and I'm getting error BC30800
I have post it below
Server Error in '/esearch' Application.

This is a Classic ASP forum, while you're posting an ASP.NET question.
If I were to respond to this as a classic ASP page, then I would say
that it should read

response.write("Checked")
instead of
response.write "Checked"

It's clearly bitching that you don't have parens around the string in
line 86
