The Razor parser is smart. For example, if you want to display an email address, you can enter the following:
<p> Serial@Model.com </p>
... and Razor will happily output Serial@Model.com into the output - it recognizes the email address.
But what if you want to output a serial number?
Unfortunately, Razor still thinks you have an email address and outputs "Serial@Model.SerialNumber". In a few rare cases you have to be more explicit and let the parser know where the C# code begins and ends.
<p> <text>Serial</text>@Model.SerialNumber </p>
But a prettier approach is to use an “explicit code nugget” with parentheses:
<p> Serial@(Model.SerialNumber) </p>
