    Hi all,

    I have a site working where a user can add some text, wich will be display
    on a news page. I would like to give the user the ability to change some
    settings of the text he enters (color, size, alignement,... ) i'm not
    really sure on how to start on this... How do I have to save tags in my DB?
    Any suggestions or exmaples greatly appriciated..

    rgds,

  2. Looks like you need an html or rich text editor component. Google for one.

  3. Sounds like you need a rich text box control.
    Here are a few free ones you could use:
