adding html textbox to Windows Form

I use a Windows Form to add items to my online store. I have to manually add the <tags> to the item description so that I can change font, color, etc...

Is there a control I can add to my Windows Form so that this is easier? Perhaps there's a textbox control similar to the control many webpages use where you can preview how the text will look like.

I can easily modify the code and create a webform if there isn't a control for Windows (but there is for web).

Thanks,
Myers

You can import a internet explorer panel into the windows app and preview your code through it no problem.

Add a webbrowser object to your form and add

webBrowser1.DocumentText = myFormattedHTML;

Thanks for the posts.

badbearontour: I actually wanted to eliminate the need to add the tags.

emoreau: XStandard seems like a good tool for this. Does the "XStandard Lite" version let you change font color?

I thought I have already saw the font color tag in it but it was in another editor that needs to be hosted on a web page.
