C# windows form embed word doc


I'm new to C#

I'm creating a windows application.  One of the forms is to be used for "notes."  The users would like to be able to format the text etc in the notes form.  I thought the best way to do this would be to embed a word document in the form so they can use all the word functionality.  

Is this the best way?  if so how would i do it?

Has anyone got a sample application for this sort of thing i could look at?

Thanks in advance!

word will be too heavy for me. Depends on the notes but rtf is also fine possibility

I'll use HTML. It's an easily understandable format, very portable and admits many formatting options.

Thanks for your comments.  

Would i then have to create formatting buttons for the user to be able to format bits of text input etc?
How would i do that?
Do either of you have any examples i could look at?

In a combination of suggestions already id be looking at something like this project over at code project

This uses HTML and implements a small subset of formating commands. The more advantage you get the more you could add.

Good Luck
