    Thanks in advance.

    You could create a custom databound control yourself. This article might help:

    Maybe it's possible to create a custom control which inherits from the DetailsView and override the render to write your own HTML instead. I haven't worked too much with the detailsview so I can't give any examples of how to do this though.

    I don't think that's possible. A suggestion has been posted to microsoft about it though:

    You probably have to create a custom control to do it.
