We are rewriting an application that was Cold Fusion & Access to VB & ASP. We need the equivalent to the #paragraphformat# tag in Cold Fusion for ASP. The user fills in a textbox in VB which saves into an ntext field (.textrtf) in the database and we want all the formatting (bold, italic, bullets) to display exactly as it is typed into the text box onto the ASP page. I am asking this question from my programmer so I hope I have worded everything correctly. Thanks.
