Style sheets

Hi ,

I am using a yahoo text editor( similar to the blog application example in visualforce) to edit one textarea field.
But when I save and it does not show the data in the format .

For example when  I print text in italics
it prints <i> your text </i>

I know it is some style sheet problem. Does anyone know which style sheet to use to display formatted text ?

Thanks,
Sirisha

when you use a rich text editor , and save the src (markups) for this, it is html markup, so you should see it stored as <i> your text </i>

if you render that src in a proper html area, it will appear formated at that point.

also , look into richText="true" attribute on inputTextArea, it's cool.

Hi Ron,

While saving the data in to the Textarea(Long) field ..I used the rich text editor. But for displaying can I do it with Visualforce?

Do I need to an S control to display the saved text in proper format..

Can u please give sample code to do that in Visualforce ?

Thanks,
Sirisha

Code:
<apex:outputText value="{!foo}" escape="false"/> 

 is the standard way to handle outputing unescaped markup.
