I have a form with a Rich Text Editor that saves it's contents into a table.  I'm attempting to create a report and would like the contents to resolve as HTML.  Example contents:
<font color='red'>Hello</font>.  Right now when I run the report the cell says "<font color='red'>Hello</font>" and I would like to render the HTML so its Hello in the color red.  Is this possible?

Basically I have a cell in a table with HTML mark up and I want to display the content with the rendered HTML. I'm using Visual Studio to create the report and I have deployed it to the ReportServer.
Example:
Current Output
Notes: <b>text</b>
Desired Output:
Notes: text

I don't think you will be able to display rendered HTML as part of the cell in a report. as the only control that displays text is textBox, that can not display the rendered HTML.
