You cannot mix languages within a single ASP.NET page. Could you provide
an example string which you have attempted to escape/unescape and the
results you achieved using the mix of client/server functions? I've
never tried mixing the two in this way, but I've used both independently
and off the top of my head, they both produce similar results.

All the best,
