I hope this easy. I wrote a php code that save HTML tags inside XML file as below:

<DOC>
  <TITLE ID="96001">test</TITLE>
  <PAR ID="96002”>
<!—HTML tags here-- > 
</PAR>
  </DOC>

But the file appear like this

<DOC>
  <TITLE ID="96001">test</TITLE>
  <PAR ID="96002">&lt;ul&gt;&lt;BR&gt;&nbsp; &lt;li&gt;&lt;strong&gt;123456789&lt;/strong&gt;&lt;/li&gt;&lt;BR&gt;&nbsp; &lt;li&gt;&lt;strong&gt;987654321 &lt;/strong&gt;&lt;/li&gt;&lt;BR&gt;&nbsp; &lt;li&gt; &lt;/li&gt;&lt;BR&gt;&lt;/ul&gt;</PAR>
  </DOC>
 and when I print the content of the file it appear like this

<ul><BR>  <li><strong>123456789</strong></li><BR>  <li><strong>987654321 </strong></li><BR>  <li> </li><BR></ul>

which I want but not as a pure tags but I want it formatted like this

·      123456789
·      987654321

You need to print it from a browser so that the html gets rendered.

Try opening it with Internet Explorer and then printing it.

If you're trying to store HTML inside of XML, you need to put the HTML in CDATA.

<![CDATA[<b>My HTML tags</b>]]>

CDATA starts with <![CDATA[ and ends with ]]>
