If you simply want to have it formatted like the test, by in HTML, simple replace all vbCrLf with <br /> and Server.HTMLEncode the text, then write simple HTML tags and output to new file:

Imports System.IO

Dim text As String = File.ReadAllText(textFile)
Dim html As String

html = Server.HTMLEncode(text)
html = html.Replace(vbCrLf, "<br />" + vbCrLf)
html = "<html><body><p>" + html + "</p></body></html>"

File.WriteAllText("htmlFile", html)
Do you want to just add tags around the text?

I mean

My Sample String -> <html><body>My Sample String</body></html>

I want to convert an actual txt (the whole file) into HTML file.

Ah, you need to import the below and use HttpUtility.HtmlEncode:

Imports System.Web

html = HttpUtility.HtmlEncode(text)

I did import, but I don't see HttpUtility.HtmlEncode
