You use the Literal class to insert literal text, often HTML, into a Web form. Here is the hierarchy of this class:
Object Control Literal
This class's only notable property is the Text property, with which you assign the text you want to insert into a Web form's HTML—it has no methods or events that are not inherited from the WebControl class. Note that as with other Web server controls, I am not listing the notable properties, methods, and events this class inherits from the Control and WebControl classes—you can find them in Tables 15.1 to 15.5.
