Default ugly result with Replace function

I want to post a message on a site, starting from a simple text template, in which I want to set a little text.

tplText = "<br><table width="100%" border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="5"><tr align="left" valign="top">
<td width="20"><img src="/_images/b_help.gif" width="15" height="14" border="0" align="baseline"></td><td><span class="tekst10pxRood" style="font-size:12px;line-height:16px">[MESSAGE]<br><a href="[LINK]">Meer info</a></span> </td></tr>

fillstring = "&é"'(§è!çà)-^$ùµ=:;,1234567890°¨*£%+/.?´`~"
nlstr = tplText.Replace("[MESSAGE]", fillstring);

Result : "&é"'(§è!çà)-^MESSAGENL=[Dit is een NL Test"

i can see that the $ character causes the problem, but I don't know the solution

What does that text represent? are those unicode characters?

Why are you building so much HTML manually and not using the .NET controls for all of that?

Also, you might try the String.Format() method. Instead of creating your own replacement tokens, you can use the available methods for replaceing inside a string:

strMyString = String.Format("Replace {0} and {1}", "this", "that")
  will result in
strMyString == "Replace this and that"

I tried using the String.Format function but this also gives
me the same error:

if I put the $ character somewhere in the arguments, the string format doesn't work, you should try it...

So, you want us to help you build a system that will automatically post messages for you to web sites--- hmmmmmmm I wonder what use that might have.
