[mono-vb] Help with code blocks inside html tags in .Aspx files

I'm also a new mono user, and I'm actually trying to port an existing
asp.net application to mono.
I've encountered a problem with code blocks within html tags and cant find a
way to run around it. 

To better explain my  problem I have this simple sample code:

<%@ Page Language="VB" AutoEventWireup="false" CodeFile="Default.aspx.vb"
Inherits="_Default" %>

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN"

<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" >

<head runat="server">
    <title>Mono Tester</title>
<body >
    <form id="form1" runat="server" onload="form1_Load">
    <div id="H<%=intID%>">
        Mono Tester<br />
        <br />
        <br />
        <asp:TextBox ID="TextBox1" runat="server"></asp:TextBox></div>
        <input id="input<%=intID%>" value="<%=strString%>" type="text" />


the code behind file looks like this:

Partial Class _Default
    Inherits System.Web.UI.Page

    Protected strString As String
    Protected intId As Integer

    Protected Sub form1_Load(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As
        strString = "Random data"
        intId = 1
        Me.TextBox1.Text = strString
    End Sub
End Class

I have no problems running the application on windows, but on mono every
code block inside a tag causes an error: 

Description: Error compiling a resource required to service this request.
Review your source file and modify it to fix this error.

Line 192:             
Line 193:             #ExternalSource(@@inner_string@@, 1)

if I remove the code blocks located inside tags, the application runs ok,
any other way produces this error.

The problem is that in the actual application I'm working on this is is used
heavily, so I would like to know if there's any way to work around this

Any suggestions or ideas are very welcome! 

Thanks in advance for your time and cooperation,
Alberto León
