BoundFields, DataFormatString, and HtmlEncode

Ran into this again today.

<asp:BoundField
  DataField="FollowUpDate"
  DataFormatString="{0:MMM-dd-yy}"
  HtmlEncode="false"
  HeaderText="Follow Up Date" />

If you are doing a boundfield in an asp.net gridview, and you play on using the DataFormatString, you have to set HtmlEncode to false.

Kinda stupid, but that’s life.
