Inner Content Property in UserControl


I would like to create a User Control that accepts a property between its opening and closing brackets in the htm, such that I can obtain the value in the code-behind for the control.

i.e. something like :

<MyControls:MyControl id="ctl" runat="server">
    ..some literal text here..

And ".. some literal text here.." would be accessible as a property in the control.

How would I go about implementing this within a User Control? Or is it something that is only possible with Server Controls?

The User Control does not allow literal content between its tags....

And there is no way to circumvent this? What about nesting another control that would hold the property instead?
There's no way to circumvent this, UserControl does not accept any literal content as well as any child control.
