FIX: Render Method in BasePartialCachingControl Class Renders by Using HtmlTextWriter

This article has been archived. It is offered "as is" and will no longer be updated.
The Render method in the BasePartialCachingControl class renders by using a writer of type HtmlTextWriter. This frequently occurs when you use an OuputCache directive for user controls. When a down-level browser browses to the page, the browser continues to use HtmlTextWriter instead of Html32TextWriter to render the user control.

For example, the following user control
<%@ Control Language="c#" %><%@ OutputCache Duration="30" VaryByParam="none" %><asp:TextBox id="txt" runat="server" Width="442px" />				
should be rendered as follows for down-level browsers:
<input name="txt" id="txt" type="text" />				
However, because a HtmlTextWriter type is used to render cached controls, the browser renders the user control as follows:
<input name="txt" id="txt" style="width:449px;" type="text" />				
Notice the style attribute.

Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed at the beginning of this article. This problem was first corrected in Microsoft .NET Framework Service Pack 2 (SP2).
After you apply the fix, cached controls (for example, user controls that include the OuputCache directive) are rendered by using the writer that is associated with the page instead of by using HtmlTextWriter.

If you use a down-level browser, the writer is of type Html32TextWriter. If you use an up-level browser, the writer is of type HtmlTextWriter.
