RichTextBox control?

What exactly is a Rich Text Box control and what would I typically use it for in C#?

It's similar to a standard edit box in multi-line configuration, except it provides support for:
- formatting text (font type, size, bold, underlined, colours, etc)
- formatting paragraphs (bullets, indented, spacing between lines, etc)
- embedding of pictures and objects

Basically, sort of a mini WordPad. In fact, the Windows WordPad is actually nothing more than a Rich Edit Control with functionality exposed through menu commands, toolbar buttons and context menus.
