I created a web project in vs 2008 with c#.

I am displaying text from an xml file in a table cell.  That works perfectly.

The problem I'm having is that the text has some embedded html chars, like <b> and <p> that are displaying as literals.  I have tried encoding them as html, but that only turns them in the escape sequences and displays THOSE as literals.  

How can I get the text to display as html?

How are you writing them to the page? If I remember correctly, I use to just use the label control to write the html to the page.

I'm just writing to the table cell (inner html).  I tried a text box control, but that didn't help.  I will try the label control.

BTW, the <p> is already escaped in the xml.

ok, I'm dumb.  I was saving the node.toString() rather then the node.Value.  Now all works fine.  You get the points for answering.  thanks.
