Examples

// Create a custom ControlBuilder that interprets nested elements
// named myitem as TextBoxes. If this class is called in a 
// ControlBuilderAttribute applied to a custom control, when
// that control is created in a page and it contains child elements
// that are named myitem, the child elements will be rendered as 
// TextBox server controls. This control builder also ignores literal
// strings between elements when it is associated with a control.
