How to render only text into a word document using web forms ?

I am using the below code , but, it is rendering with <html> tags :

                Response.Buffer = true;
                Response.ContentType = "application/vnd.word";
                Response.ContentEncoding = System.Text.Encoding.UTF7;
                Response.AddHeader("Content-Disposition", "attachment;filename=xyz.doc");
                Response.Charset = "";
                EnableViewState = false;
                System.IO.StringWriter oStringWriter = new System.IO.StringWriter();
                System.Web.UI.HtmlTextWriter oHtmlTextWriter = new System.Web.UI.HtmlTextWriter(oStringWriter);

You should be able to use regular expressions to remove them.
Add the following to the top of your file:
using System;
using System.Text.RegularExpressions;

Open in new window

and then call this function:
    public string RemoveHTML(string strSource)
        return Regex.Replace(strSource, "<.*?>", string.Empty);

Open in new window
