I have this asp.net form which people will fill in to create a report.
Basically there is a WORD document template people use but the format gets changed.

I am trying to create a web based form so I can format the content and create a report.
I remember that textbox of Webform doesn't handle the rich text format like bold, sub or super script.

People will copy and paste into the textboxes of the webform.
How can I support them??

Basically after users fill in the webform, I have to get the values of those textboxes and put into the XML format but how can I handle things like super or sub script becasue they will all come out as
a number after a word like  'something'.

Any idea for handling this.
Maybe using the webform is not a good way to do this.

you might want to use something like freetextbox which will support most of the formatting and saving it properly...
