    Is this code correct for displaying URL in listview?

    public void getCategories(SqlUtils db) { string sql = "SELECT CategoryID,Description FROM Category WHERE Enabled = 1"; DataTable categories = new DataTable(); string cats = "";

        categories = db.FillTable(sql);
        foreach (DataRow dr in categories.Rows)
            dr["Description"] = Server.HtmlDecode(string.Format("<a href='{0}'>{1}</a><img src='images/nav_category_block.gif' width='14' height='6' />", GenerateURL((string)dr["description"].ToString()), (string)dr["Description"]));
        Listview1.DataSource = categories;
