    The resulting code is encoded.  You'll need to decode the string.

    onclick="editPop('IVEUG1-8888-0123', 'HCL1', 'VU00000008', 'VEGESNA RAGHURAMA RAJU', 'IND');"></a>

    Hi jsshivalik,

    According to your description, i can't reproduce your question. but I made demo for you.

    The code:

    <script type="text/javascript">
            function popup(url, width, height) {
                var width = width;
                var height = height;      
                var params = 'width=' + width + ', height=' + height;        
                window.open(url, 'name', params);       
                return false;
     <a href="#" onclick="<%= Server.HtmlEncode(string.Format("popup(\"{0}\", \"{1}\", \"{2}\");", "https://forums.asp.net/t/2159878.aspx",600,300))%>">Click me</a>

    Best regards,

    Server.HtmlEncode() fixes the issue in this duplicate thread.   However, you also have a design bug.  Unfortunately, you have not clearly explained the problem you are trying to solve in this or your similar threads.

    Can you explain the design intent?  Are you trying to open a new window or tab with content, open a confirmation modal, open a modal HTML form, maybe something else?

    Also, please provide the editPopup function/method and explain how you intend the code to work.

    From some unknown reason you are not following any of the recommendations in this thread or your similar threads. 

    Given your code, I'm guessing you are trying to open a Bootstrap Modal so the user can confirm a delete.  The following is a WORKING example.   Feel free to update the code as needed.

    Hi jsshivalik,

    onclick="editPop(&quot;IVEUG1-8888-0123&quot;, &quot;HCL1&quot;, &quot;VU00000008&quot;, &quot;VEGESNA RAGHURAMA RAJU
    &quot;, &quot;IND&quot;);"></a>

    Is this the result of browser rendering?

    Here's a similar question you can use as a reference: https://stackoverflow.com/a/37858434

    I guess the problem is caused by using " " render. so please try to change "" to ' ' .

    If you also can't solve the problem, please post your full aspx code.

    Best regards,
