HI

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!

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?

howdy

In a combination of suggestions already id be looking at something like this project over at code project
http://www.codeproject.com/KB/edit/editor_in_windows_forms.aspx

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

Good Luck
