Webbrowser control isn't an editable control. It can show and navigate you to web pages. You cannot edit html pages with that control.

Is there a native control or functionality that can do the work? I'm asking because OLE WebBrowser is a third party library (.dll) i we want to change that and start using native tools.

Because in the oleWebBrowser with can set

this.Object.Document.ExecCommand(as_Command, False, as_Value)

where as_command could be (Bold,Italic,FontSize,..) all properties that can be changed.

In powerbuilder you can use richtextedit control which can produce htlm. Of course depending on what you want to achieve the result may good enough or not.
