The purpose of the HtmlTextBox
is to give basic text formatting options and not to support fully capable HTML markup. At the same time the RadRichTextBox export gives you a markup fully representing the text formatting as seen in the control and uses attributes which are not supported by the HtmlTextBox
The configuration that you are using currently gives the best compatibility between these two controls that you can get.
