Default % is an invalid character?

I have uploaded my web service to the server. when i typed the address of the asmx file in the browser, i get a message that a name is beginning with an invalid character - referring to the % sign in the <%@ tag in the first line as the invalid character. i need help to resolve this pls.

can you post the exact error message text? I have never heard of this error. Are you sure the server is correctly set up for ASP.NET?
