I am using BPOS's SharePoint Online Standard.

I have two lists and a view for each. Lets say list A is displayed in view A and list B is displayed in view B. View A is displayed on my main (default) page of my sharepoint site while view B is displayed on a seperate page that I created within the same site.

Both views use a calculated column to render html. The html renders correctly for view A but not for view B. They use the same formula in their calculated columns. Why would that be?

SharePoint is displaying the code as things like > instead of < making it show the HTML on the screen rather than rendering it.

Use the JavaScript in this tutorial: http://blog.pathtosharepoint.com/2008/09/01/using-calculated-columns-to-write-html/  It shows you how to make a calculated column that as < DIV > < /DIV > on each end of the cell and makes it render correctly.
