I have a field <input  runat ="server" id="email" ..>

This is in a formview. I want to find that control...can I use a Textbox to find it
TextBox email = frmContact.FindControl("email") as TextBox;

Or HTMLControl something?

If you can, you might want to change the control <asp:TextBox ...>.

However, if the input type equals text, it should equate to and HTML Control for the text box.

input itself is nothing really.."Type" attribute is required.
<input type="text">
<input type="button">

runat=server attribute makes your controls to be accessed via .Net FrameWork

A textbox in HTML is an input of type text.

HTML Textbox = <input type="text" />

Also, an <asp:Textbox> control renders a <input type="text" />
