I hope I have submitted this to the right place! 
(apologies if I haven't).

I wonder if you could help with me with a MAJOR problem?

Requirement:    To be able to display HTML formatting commands, like 
                "<b>" in an INPUT field.

Definition:     The browser strips out any HTML commands from the INPUT 
                field when it is displaying it.

                Thus, although one can enter into an INPUT field the 
                text with HTML formatting .... and my program receives 
                this information (including the HTML formatting)... I 
                can't display back to them (in an INPUT field) the 
                exact text (with the HTML formatting).

Does anyone happen to know whether there is a way around this? 

EG is there a "NO PARSE" type command telling the browser to ignore any
HTML commands within the INPUT field?

Regards, and many thanks in advance for your help.
