Hi there,

Take a look at this:

Result.Text += "<br />Your favorite language is" = FavoriteLanguage.SelectedValue;
See that last equals sign? That should be a plus. You may also want to add an additional space after the word is giving you this code:

Result.Text += "<br />Your favorite language is " + FavoriteLanguage.SelectedValue;
Same error message when using the source downloaded code from Chapter 4
Are you sure you copied over the correct code or ran the correct file? The code that comes with the book is correct and should run without an error.
