HTMLEncode in Code-Behind GridView BoundField

I have successfully created a GridView in my code and can add a BoundColumn too.  However, when the column is drawn on the page, the HTML tags are displayed.  

{.asp.vb code}
                        Dim dg As New GridView
                        dg.AutoGenerateColumns = False
                        dg.ShowHeader = False
                        dg.CssClass = "SubReqBox_on"
                        Dim dgc As BoundField = New BoundField()
                        dgc.DataField = "CRSubRequirement"
                        dgc.HtmlEncode = True
                        dgc.HtmlEncodeFormatString = True
                        dgc.InsertVisible = True
                        dg.Columns.Add(dgc)
                        dg.DataSource = ds
                        dg.DataBind()

The text in my DB that corresponds to CRSubRequirement would be something like:

<div>words words words</div>

And of course, I don't want those Div tags showing in my grid.

Aha!  If you don't want to see HTML, set HTMLEncode to false.  Sure..Got it!

The "answer" is then:

                       Dim dg As New GridView
                        dg.AutoGenerateColumns = False
                        dg.ShowHeader = False
                        dg.CssClass = "SubReqBox_on"
                        Dim dgc As BoundField = New BoundField()
                        dgc.DataField = "CRSubRequirement"
                        dgc.HtmlEncode = False  '<--IMPORTANT PART-->
                        dgc.HtmlEncodeFormatString = True
                        dgc.InsertVisible = True
                        dg.Columns.Add(dgc)
                        dg.DataSource = ds
                        dg.DataBind()
