Content controls have to be top-level controls in a content page or a nested master page that references a master page.

my master page code is:

hi Amitindurkar

<BODY id="mpBodyTag" runat="server"/>

from codebehind
in master page codebehind

mpBodyTag.Attributes.Add("style","background: ... ");

in masterpage codebehind
public HtmlGenericControl BodyTag
get{return mpBodyTag;}
set{mpBodyTag= value;}

in child page
Master.BodyTag.Attributes.Add("style","background: ... ");
