When using a HtmlTextBox I am unable to utilize an Expression to call a User Function that returns a string. I get the following error:

Name cannot begin with the '-' character, hexadecimal value 0x2D. Line 1, position 8.

Now if I use a built in function like Trim, which also returns a string, it works fine... if I replace the HtmlTextBox with a regular Textbox it also works fine... so what is it about the HtmlTextBox that I'm missing...

Ignore this, it was a bug in the way resource files where updated in VS. Once I closed my project and re-opened it, everything worked as expected. The preview window was showing old data (which was broken), it seems to be updating okay now though.
