difference between HTML server controls and web se
What is the difference between HTML server controls and web server controls and how to convert HTML server controls back to HTML elemets.

Web Server Control - Web Server Controls are classes in the .NET Framework that represent visual elements on a web form. Some of these classes are relatively straight forward and map closely to a specific HTML tag. Other controls are must more ambititious abstractions that render a more complex representation from multiple HTML tags.

HTML server controls: These are classes that wrap the standard HTML Tags and are declared with runat="server" attribute. Apart from this attribute, the declaration for an HTML server control remains the same.
