How we check that is wrong input or not??? User can enter any input right???Will you please make it more clear?

Use a asp:Literal control and set to pass through mode.
Then in code construct the markup for the text you want to highlight using style tags:

Markup:
ASP.NET
<asp:literal runat="server" id="literal1" mode="Passthrough" xmlns:asp="#unknown" />

C#
private void YourInputMethod(string inputText)
{
    // Add your logic to validate correct or incorrect value
    // bool valid = Validate(...);
    // ...
    // string invalidValue = "" <-- set the invalid value
    // Replace the invalid text in the input with a placeholder:
    // inputText.Replace(invalidValue,"[invalid]");

    if (!valid)
    {
        string invalidStyle = Highlighter(invalidValue, "InvalidInputCSSStyle")
        inputText.Replace("[Invalid]",invalidStyle);
    }
    Literal1.Text = inputText;
}

C#
private string Highlighter(string valueToStyle, string styleName)
{
    return "<label style="" + styleName + "">" + valueToStyle + "</label>";
}
