Why can I not use script blocks within ASP:Label controls?

Below is some code that I do not know why it does not work. Okay, as you
can see it is simple HTML with two ASP:Label controls. Each label has some
code that basically gets a string that will be written to the browser.
ConditionalText .Eval is a method from my own library. As you can see, I
have written some static text before and after the first Eval call. If I
open this page, I get no content in the Label, even the static content. I
just get "<span id="lblScenario "
style="font-size:17px;font-weight:bold;"></span>". Now, suppose that I
remove first Eval call and open the page again, I get "<span
id="lblScenario "
style="font-size:17px;font-weight:bold;">s dfsadffdsfsda</span>", which this
time contains the static content as expected. I have even removed my
reference to Eval and just placed static content in the <% %> block and the
same thing happens. Any ideas at what the server is doing?
<form id="Form1" method="post" runat="server">
aaaaaaaa
<table>
<TR>
<TD vAlign="top">
<asp:Label id="lblScenario " Font-Size="17px" Font-Bold="True"
Runat="server"> sdfsadf<%= ConditionalText .Eval("ADMIN_MA RKET_HEADER")
%>fdsfsda</asp:Label>
<br>
<br>
<asp:Label id="lblScenario Expl" Font-Bold="False" Runat="server">
<%= ConditionalText .Eval("ADMIN_MA RKET_INSTRUCTIO N") %>
</asp:Label>
</TD>
</TR>
</table>
bbbbbbbb
</form>

It doesn't work because ASP.NET is taking the <asp:Label x=y z=w> and creating
a method to do the instantiation and assignment of those properties on the
Label (BTW, the text inside the tags is just a Text property assignment).
This is done at creation time of the ASPX Page object. The <%%> syntax is
Rendering syntax which is done at a much later time in the page lifecycle
andn thus conflicts with the initialization code mentioned above. The idea
is that if you've gone to all the work to make this a server control, then
you'd do those sorts of assignments (dynamic or otherwide) in your code for
your page, like Page_Load. In short, the ASP.NET parser and object model
is at odds with their attempt to provide backwards classic ASP style inline
rendering syntax.

I'm not sure to undersand what do you want to do,
but in ASP.NET sou shouldn't use <%= %> to render some dynamic content like
ASP developers used to do before ASP.NET

It is better to write the code like :
lblScenario.Tex t = "mystring"+Cond itionalText.Eva l("ADMIN_MARKET _HEADER")

and searching why or why not your result is strange is not the good question
I mean...

I want to use a asp Label control (or a <div runat=server> element) in a template column of a datagrid. In the code behind in the grid's ItemDataBound event I need to dynamically set the innerHTML of this control with data and line breaks (<br>). The problem is that while working in the code behind, I don't see any properties for this control where I can set innerHTML, only text. Any good ideas?
