1. My recommendation is to use the Fieldrender if possible. There are many types supported, even Images.See the list of supported types here:
2. If you use the sc:Text control, be careful with the Attribute for the Field Name!! They look different and are not equal. Sadly the "Enclosing Tag" or the"CssClass" Attribute are not available in important SC Controls. That makes life harder and need to set via code behind or with just HTML.
Use Attribute "Field" for the sc:Text Control to set the Fieldname from the Sitecore Backend!
<sc:Text ID="scText" Field="Description" runat="server" />
