This is referred as Request Validation - http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/hh882339(v=vs.100).aspx

When you are sure that you will use HTML-encode everywhere then pass strings to HTML and then set Page's validateRequest="false"

AND

If you are on .net 4.0 make sure you add this in your web.config
Inside the <system.web> tags

<httpRuntime requestValidationMode="2.0" />

The above solution provided by @s_chilkury will work fine...but not recommended..

The reason is you are opening a security breach.

Instead of that what you can do is Use some sort of JavaScript that will encode your HTML at client side and send it to the server. Save the same in DB with SP which won't cause any problem and when ever you are getting it back from DB you can Decode it.

while taking such decision make sure to keep in mind
as You also need to check it at Server side...


IF you are ok with that, then Above solution provided by @s_chilkury will work fine
