I’m trying to output some Twitter handles in ASP.NET MVC3 in conjunction with the Twitter @Anywhere API, and I haven’t been able to figure out how to actually escape the “@” symbol in a Razor view.
Does anyone know what the syntax is for escaping the “@” character in Razor?
I’ve tried using
<text></text> and that results in a JIT error.
You have to use @@ to escape the @ symbol.
One important thing to notice is that you DO NOT need to escape the @ symbol when it exists within an email address. Razor should be smart enough to figure that out on its own.
