You're right, of course. I must have had a brain cramp when I put UniqueID instead of ClientID in this chapter (I got the distinction right when the topic comes up again in chapter 9 where I actually do discuss working with client-side code). The distinction is nefarious because (I think) UniqueID will look like it's working as long as the control isn't nested inside any other control but will fail when the control is nested because of the separator used between control names in the UniqueID. My apologies.

We'll also correct the other misprints you found in the next edition <sigh>.

I really appreciate you taking the time to work through the book in this detail. Will you be giving the same keen eye to later chapters? (I'd certainly appreciate it).

When you have eliminated all which is impossible, then whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth.
