    Hi all

    I am currently developing in VS .NET 2005. I am trying to create a master
    page but am getting the above error (Unrecognized tag prefix or device filter
    'asp') when trying to add a Content Placeholder control.

    My page source is as follows:

    <%@ Master Language="C#" AutoEventWireup="true"
    CodeBehind="MainSite.master.cs" Inherits="NBNZ.MasterPages.MainSite" %>
    <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN"
    "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
    <html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" >
    <head runat="server">
    <title>National Bank: Business Banking</title>
    <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=windows-1252" />
    <link href="/_private/style_lvl3.css" type="text/css" rel="stylesheet" />
    <asp:contentplaceholder id="_metaContent"
    runat="server"></asp:contentplaceholder>
    </head>
    <body>
    </body>
    </html>

    Can anyone help me with this, please?

    Thanks and kind regards

    Shivonne

    The first thing to try is this:

    1) close all VS instances and then delete the folder contents
    2) Folder:
    C:\Documents and Settings\[Username]\Application
    Data\Microsoft\VisualStudio\8.0\ReflectedSchemas

    in VS 2005 XML Schemas are automatically generatedthem using reflection on
    Web controls. So if something got "out of whack" that's where you want to
    get rid of the results and try letting them get regenerated.

    Hi Peter

    Thanks for the quick response. I tried your solution below but it hasn't
    resolved the problem. I also tried deleting all the files in the Temporary
    ASP .NET Files folder under C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727 but
    still no luck.

    Thanks

    Shivonne

    I too am experiencing this same problem. Have you found a solution?

    The strange part is that the asp:content tag works just fine, but no asp:... tags inside of it will work. And when the page is browsed, the asp:... tags get parsed just fine.

    I saw a bug report at M$ about this exact issue, but M$ said that nested masters don't work in the designer... even though we're not in the designer...

    Workaround

    I Found a Workaround

    I discovered that if you have the nested master page open at the same time, the child pages will work... there's M$ for you...

    Common.Master -can be closed
    Section1.Master -open
    Section1Child1.aspx -open

    I was experiencing the same problem. I eventually discovered that my @Page declaration was missing the MasterPageFile property. Once I added this property (MasterPageFile="MasterPage.master") everything worked as expected.
