    Can anyone point me to a concise article on when to use a plain HTML <INPUT
    type="Text"> tag vs a Web Form's Web Control? I know the latter renders
    like the former (when I View Source), but the Web Control allows me a lot of
    flexibility on the server side. But now I want to use JScript on the client
    side to do simple things like position to a specific control when I hit the
    onblur event.

    I know I can tell the HTML <INPUT type="Text"> tag to runat="server", but
    can I run client scripts? Just need some direction.

    Thanks,

    Keith
