The SPFieldText class corresponds to the Text data type that is specified through the Type attribute of the Field element.

Notes to Inheritors

In Windows SharePoint Services 3.0, columns based on custom field types do not appear in Datasheet view and are not included when you export a list to a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet.

Any public static (Shared in Visual Basic) members of this type are thread safe. Any instance members are not guaranteed to be thread safe.
