<asp:TextBox ID="TextBox1" runat="server" myCustAttribute="CustAttributeValue"></asp:TextBox>

then you can refer to the custom attribute in the code behind

TextBox1.Attributes["myCustAttribute"]

Thanks for accepting my answer.  As for your question about looping through the attributes
see http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/kkeesb2c(v=vs.100).aspx

            string myText = "";
            foreach(string key in TextBox1.Attributes.Keys)
            {
                myText += key + " = " + TextBox1.Attributes[key];
            }
