WYSIWYG Editor ASP.NET

Hey all,

I just installed VS2005.
I am wondering if it comes with some sort of WYSIWYG control.
I want to create a website where all the content is editable through
some admin panels.
I had heard that VS2005 has a web control for this, but I can't find
it.
I just need it to render HTML, but for the dumb user, have little bold
and itallics buttons, list points, etc.

I would prefer not to get a 3rd party one if there is a built in one
for ASP.NET in .NET2.0

Many thanks,
Steven Nagy

Steven,
There are a number of open-source, "freeware" WSYWYG HTML Editor controls
for ASP.NET. FreeTextBox is the first one that comes to mind.

Thanks Peter. I guess that means I was misled when I believed there was
one packaged in VS2005.

I have found a few free ones as well, but I'll check the one you
mentioned as well.

You're probably talking about webparts.

I have no idea if that is what I am talking about or not.
I noticed this "webparts" section under tools... I haven't had time to
look into them yet, but would I have been able to use one of those
controls to add WYSIWYG functionality to my web form? The FreeTextBox
one is quite good actually, it looks very professional and is easy to
use. I've implemented it now across the board for this website, but I
would still love to know if there is a way to WYSIWYG in VS2005...

WebParts seem to "add on" to existing controls, am I right?
