TextBox rendered as <h1> tag

How can I make a textbox to be rendered in the html file as <h1> tag?

I have this detailsview template and I have tried to put the textbox inside the <h1> tag, but in the html file the <h1> tag is not included...

                 <asp:TextBox ID="TextBox1" runat="server" Text='<%# Bind("Car_Category") %>'></asp:TextBox>

I mean textbox will always be rendered as HTML input tag in client side.  So, it is not possible to remove the input tags.
Textbox style will not get updated by placing it between the <h1> tag. <h1> tag will update the style of the innerText and not innerHTML. So, placing a textbox inside a <h1> will not work.

So, write a StyleSheet class (resembling h1 tag style properties) and set the class to this textbox. So, your textbox text will look like <h1> tag style. Let me know, you want different.
Give your textbox a CssClass property.
Then in that class define the css properties for your textbox for it to look like h1 tag.
<asp:TextBox ID="TextBox1" runat="server" CssClass="Class1" Text='<%# Bind("Car_Category") %>'></asp:TextBox>
in your style tag

I don't want just look like a h1 tag, but I want to be rendered in the html file to <h1>mytextbox text</h1>

unfortunately it is not possible using a textbox.

you can use a literal instead.

Literal1.Text = "<h1>" + "MyText" + "</h1>"

Then is this possible with the label control?

Yes it is possible with label control. <h1> will reflect with Label or Literal or DIV tag or SPAN tag.
