ASP strips out white space between the closing delimiter of a statement and the opening delimiter of the following statement. If there is a need to preserve the white space between two statements, such as when displaying the values of variables in a sentence, you must use an HTML nonbreaking space character ( )
'Define two variables with string values.
FirstName = "XX"
LastName = "YY"
Now to process the page so that "XX YY" and "XXYY" is displayed, you need to add HTML nonbreaking space character between the variables.
<P>My name is "<%= FirstName %>
<%= LastName %>." </P>
