Binding Long Text to textarea

I have an ntext field in my SQL Server database.  When binding the value to my field in the DetailsView textarea, all I get is the value "<long text>".  Any ideas why it's not showing the full text as it should?

I've just tried that, and the same result I'm afraid.  Extremely odd (and more than a little frustrating!)...

Just worked it out, and I've been a complete idiot, and (as usual) it's completely unrelated...

Thanks for the assistance anyway, and I've given you the points.
