I am using an <asp:TextBox> to capture user input but get an error warning if words/characters typed in it resemble html.  I do not actually want <html> tags typed in the textbox to display as HTML, but I really want to get rid of the error that shows when submitting the page.

    (ie: if someone typed "<strong>My Text</strong>", it does not have to make the text My Text    
          bolded.  I should just show "<strong>My Text</strong>"

How can I take whatever is typed--even if it resembles HTML and not get an error?
