Writing InfoPath 2010 RTF values to SQL Server 2012

Hi all,

I have an InfoPath 2010 form with rich text field, which contains

  1. formatted text, such as bullet point or numberings
  2. formatted tables
  3. Charts and graphs
  4. images, such as a screenshot of a spreadsheet...etc

All these in a rich text control field.  Question:  Is there a way to capture all these values without losing the formatting and layout of the content of the RTF field value, then

  1. serialize it (if that's the correct word to use) and write to a field in SQL Server (2012) table.
  2. Since a RTF in InfoPath 2010 is XHTML, what field type would best suit this kind of content on SQL Server?  BLOB type?

Thanks in advance,
