Yes, I'm using bound data. I'm also creating the columns on the fly. But this is what I found elsewhere on the web to solve the problem:

----------------------------------

                       bf = new BoundField();
                        bf.HeaderText = reader["field_name"].ToString();
                        bf.DataField = reader["field_id"].ToString();
                        bf.SortExpression = reader["field_order"].ToString();
                        bf.HeaderStyle.Wrap = false;
                        bf.HtmlEncode = false;  //This is the line that solved the problem.
                        ChecklistView.Columns.Add(bf);

----------------------------------

HtmlEncode = false; //This is the line that solved the problem.
