  void DecryptText(object sender, EventArgs e)
	// Instantiate our object.  main.rc4encrypt is the namespace
	// name and the class name which gives us a reference to the
	// class.  We use rc4 as the variable name for our object and
	// use the new keyword to create a new instance of the object
	main.rc4encrypt rc4 = new main.rc4encrypt();

	// Set the Password property to the password we want to use
	rc4.Password = txtPassword.Text;

	// Set the PlainText password of the text we want to encrypt
	rc4.PlainText = Request.QueryString["enc"].ToString();

	// Write out to the page the encrypted output
	lblResults.Text = "The Encrypted Text is: " + 
	               Request.QueryString["enc"].ToString() +
	               "<br />The <i>Decrypted</i> Text is: " +
