Software for strain collections

I am currently reorganizing (and updating) our lab. strain collection,
and want to computerize the whole thing to make it more accessible. I
therefore need a database software which will run in Windows, and which
has a) fields which will accept text with different formatting within
each field (italics, superscript, Symbol font, etc), b) fields which will
take graphics, for plasmid maps etc, and c) a useful searching
algorithm, preferable with a "card-file" sort of format. The main problem
seems to be getting the various formats WITHIN each field. Can anyone
sugest a useful program to use, perhaps which is already in use for a
similar purpose in another laboratory?

Thanks a lot,
