I can advise few Solutions..

1st using ASP.NET....
Within ContentPlaceHolder you can have a Label/Literal and then access the TEXT of that Label within ContentPlaceHolder and duplicate it into another object.


2nd Solution is Client Side...

ContentPlaceHolder must be within a DIV (id attribuite), then use javaScript to get the innerHTML of that Div, then Store the Output into a Hidden Field, then by using ASP.NET you can access the TEXT/VALUE property of Hidden Field.

Do you think either of these would be viable to replace the HTML <input> tags with the text the person enters?  I thought of the DIV thing too but haven't played wih it yet.  Kinda hoping for a strictly .net solution.

then You would Create a User Control, and Setup properties within User Control (For multiple Versions, you can change them).

Then in .NET use the LoadControl Method to load the Control, Setup properties for each instance, and create any many copes you want (The Right way:)).

Dim ctrl as userControl
ctrl = LoadControl("ControlName.Ascx")
ctrl.Property = "My name"

PlaceHolder.AddControl(ctrl)

.. make next copy (Instance), so far and so on...
