Using MSAccess, how can I render HTML from a memo field on a report?

I have an MSAccess application that imports HTML information from a field in SQL server table to a memo field in an Access table.  I'd like to either display the information as formatted, (example shown below), or strip the HTML codes from the information during import.  (Import is done with an update query.  A record is created on the Access side & updated with information from the SQL table.)  

Here's an example of the information that comes in:

[Begin Example]

<p><span style="FONT-SIZE: 9pt; FONT-FAMILY: Arial">A computer desktop and laptop have been defined as the&nbsp;standard moving forward. These will change based on new technologies and future program requirements.&nbsp; It has been decided that PCs &nbsp;will have a 4yr lifecycle and laptops a 3yr lifecycle.&nbsp;
<p><span style="FONT-SIZE: 9pt; FONT-FAMILY: Arial">The county has purchased microsoft products under the enterpise licensening agreement so that a standard 'base' software package can be installed on all computers.&nbsp;
<p><span style="FONT-SIZE: 9pt; FONT-FAMILY: Arial">We are moving form Novell Patchlink to Microsoft SMS for troubleshooting and for pushing security updates and installing some programs.&nbsp;

[/End Example]
