I have a details few that pulls data out of my sql database.  The problem I'm having is that on the of the fields in my db is a ntext data type.  When this is displayed in a detailsview it loses all the formatting eg, bullet points paragraphs etc....

How do I format the ntext field?

It should not have any problem with formatting please check in the database and see if the formatting string exists or they have been html encoded when saved.
