I am trying to turn off bold in a character string but for some reason it is ignoring my command.  This data is stored in a variable and then assinged to a web based HTML editor.  Can someone point me in the right direction?

Here is the raw output in the editor:

<BR><BR><FONT color=blue><B>Physical Exam</B></FONT><BR>
</B>EyesLeft pupil: reactive to light<BR></B>
// Concantenate PE Array
                        int PEsecondindex;
                        MyGlobalVars.PEConCat = "<br /><br /><font color=blue><b>Physical Exam</b></font><br />";
                        for (PEsecondindex = 0; PEsecondindex < MyGlobalVars.PECount; PEsecondindex++)
                        {
                            MyGlobalVars.PEConCat = string.Format("<b>{0}</b>{1}<br />", MyGlobalVars.PEConCat, MyGlobalVars.PE[PEsecondindex]);
                        }

What do you mean by "turn of bold"? If you don't want the text to be bold you need to remove the <b> and </b> tags surrounding the currently bold text.

Can you post the resulting HTML? There isn't anything in the snippet you posted that would suggest that "reactive to light" should be appearing in bold.

I have tried to do that here

("<b>{0}</b>{1}<br />"


I turn on the bold at the beginning of the first field, then turn it off, then display the next field.

here is the entire output of the HTML editor in RAW mode:

By the way, I am using an Infragistics HTML editor if that makes a difference.

Here is additional code if this helps

foreach (var PErec in PEResult)
                    {
                        int PEcount = PEResult.Count();
                        MyGlobalVars.PECount = PEcount;
                        string[] PEarray = new string[PEcount];

                        int PEindex = 0;

                        foreach (var PEdatarec in PEResult)
                        {

                            PEarray[PEindex] = PEdatarec.PEdata.SystemName + PEdatarec.PEdata.SymptomName + "   "  + PEdatarec.PEdata.DescriptionName;

                            MyGlobalVars.PE[PEindex] = PEarray[PEindex];

                            PEindex++;

                        }


                        // Concantenate PE Array
                        int PEsecondindex;
                        MyGlobalVars.PEConCat = "<br /><br /><font color=blue><b>Physical Exam</b></font><br />";
                        for (PEsecondindex = 0; PEsecondindex < MyGlobalVars.PECount; PEsecondindex++)
                        {
                            MyGlobalVars.PEConCat = string.Format("<b>{0}</b>{1}<br />", MyGlobalVars.PEConCat, MyGlobalVars.PE[PEsecondindex]);
                        }

                    }






                    WebHtmlEditor1.Text = string.Format("{0}{1}{2}{3}{4}{5}{6}{7}<br />", MyGlobalVars.ChiefComplaint, MyGlobalVars.ChiefComplaintNote, MyGlobalVars.RxConCat, MyGlobalVars.AllergyConCat, MyGlobalVars.DiagnosisConCat, MyGlobalVars.HPIConCat, MyGlobalVars.PEConCat, MyGlobalVars.PFSHConCat);

Problem solved:

had to include the bolding in the building of the array.

 foreach (var PEdatarec in PEResult)
                        {

                            PEarray[PEindex] = "<b>" + PEdatarec.PEdata.SystemName + PEdatarec.PEdata.SymptomName + "</b>" + PEdatarec.PEdata.DescriptionName;

                            MyGlobalVars.PE[PEindex] = PEarray[PEindex];

                            PEindex++;

                        }


                        // Concantenate PE Array
                        int PEsecondindex;
                        MyGlobalVars.PEConCat = "<br /><br /><font color=blue><b>Physical Exam</b></font><br />";
                        for (PEsecondindex = 0; PEsecondindex < MyGlobalVars.PECount; PEsecondindex++)
                        {
                            MyGlobalVars.PEConCat = string.Format("{0}{1}<br />", MyGlobalVars.PEConCat, MyGlobalVars.PE[PEsecondindex]);
                        }

Well, your output markup is extremely baddly formed, but it doesn't look like the snippet you posted is the culprit (although that depends partly on what MyGlobalVars.PE[PEsecondindex] is outputting).

It is the problems with the badly formatted markup that is causing the problem, and the browser is just interpreting it as best it can.
