Textarea to write html to database

Hi Fellows

I am looking for a way to be able to give users of my site access to a textarea where they can type text to or insert pictures etc and save this text to a database column in form of HTML. It for a CMS site where user can change the contents of a webpage using this text area. Once the text and picture are in the database, a script will read it and display is the correct format (bold, colour letters, picture etc) on the webpage.
Can anyone help please.

instead of a textbox, which does not allow any formatting, you should be using a RICH TEXT BOX !!!
