Converting simple text to HTML - ASP.NET General

Is there a way to convert ASCII text entered into a textbox, for example, into HTML so that newlines will be turned into <BR> tags or similar among other things? The closest I've found is HttpUtility.HtmlEncode, but it doesn't do the job....

    Is there a way to convert ASCII text entered into a textbox, for example,
    into HTML so that newlines will be turned into <BR> tags or similar among
    other things? The closest I've found is HttpUtility.HtmlEncode, but it
    doesn't do the job.
