ASP.NET MVC3 Razor Notes - switching between text and code

Switching between text and code in Razor:

If you're in a code block and want to emit text you can use the <text> tag:

   if(condition == true) {
      <text>this is true text</text>
   } else {
      <text>this is false text</text>

The <text> tag will not be included in the generated HTML.

If you're in a text section and want to explicitly invoke code that could be confused as text you can wrap the code in parenthesis:

<img src="@(filename).jpg" />

If you had not put the () parens in above it would have tried to evaluate the .jpg as a property on the filename object.
