What is the best way to persist content of articles in ASP.NET MVC application? For example, I may have some model class named Article. This class may have a property named Content that stores the full content of the article, so i t can be persisted in the DB. The problem is that usually articles consist of several paragraphs that in turn may have some formatting, so I need to place some HTML markup in the content. Following the separation of concerns principle it is not a good thing to do. Is it OK to keep some markup with the content in the DB or is there a bettter way to keep the content with formatting?
