I've been searching the net for days for a way to store and view (retrieve) formatted documents.
It was my understanding that one could:
A: store a formatted document (With pure html like you get from copying gmail text) in sql server (a datatype of 'Text').
B: then output it again to a label or textbox and it would have the same formatting (Bold, carriage returns, etc).
I've accomplished part A, (when I hover over the field in SSMS, it shows at least the spacing and line skips that match the original doc) but text shows up in my controls as one fluid line of plain text, even with the textbox set to multiline. Labels populate no better.
I'm using C# asp.net in Visual Studio with the 2.0 framework
Is there an easy way to do this? Thanks in advance!
