What software are you using to edit the code?

[wyzz.info...] .... from this site i downloaded the Wyzz v0.62 (31k) text editor, then i integrated it with the asp.net.My database is sql server2000.

If anybody types something(with rich text) in the editor and clicks the button,it should be saved in the database.After that the text should be displayed in the same format on another page.

If a client enters "hello" in bold, this is stored in the database as &lt;strong&gt;hello&lt;/strong&gt;
And the output displaying on other page is <strong>hello</strong>

The data type for this textfield(editor) in the database is varchar(8000).
Is it the right way to use varchar datatype to store such rich texts?
