Hello Jon,

I failed to reproduce this issue using the code you provided. Please take a look at the attached screenshot and the source file and let us know if you find any discrepancies.

Additionally I tried to use Google in order to find out a possible reason for this error but I was unable to find a satisfying answer regardless of the number of results.

You can send us the whole project (via support ticket) or alternatively you can try to put the attached aspx into your website and let us know whether the issue still persists.

Kind regards,
Daniel
