I have a HTML5 file such as :

<div>Value= @item.Description</div>
<div>Hardcode=<p><strong>First Item of Group A-0 description</strong></p><ul><li>First line</li><li>Second line</li></ul><p>-- END --</p><p>
</div>
The value of @item.Description is: =<p><strong>First Item of Group A-0 description</strong></p><ul><li>First line</li><li>Second line</li></ul><p>-- END --</p><p>

The output:
Value=<p><strong>First Item of Group A-0 description</strong></p><ul><li>First line</li><li>Second line</li></ul><p>-- END --</p><p>

Hardcode=
First Item of Group A-0 description

First line
Second line
-- END --

How do I resolve this to display:

Value=
First Item of Group A-0 description

First line
Second line
-- END --

I have tried.
<pre>@Item.Description</pre>.

But there is no change.  Basically, the html5 treats the value of @Item.Description as string, so it puts " " on the output (see it in the screenshots). What it should do is to display the innerHTML.  But I do not know how to do it in the HTML. This is a small snippet in the @foreach loop. I would like to do it in the HTML, so it is readable.

How do I force browser to treat the value of @Item.Description as HTML markup, NOT the string?

I am working on the MVC project. So the @item.Description is the value from the model. It is a html markup.
However, when I display it, it shows the markup language, instead of the rendered html:

<div>Value= @item.Description</div>

For example,  <li>First line</li>.  It display as straight string "<li>First line</li>". What I want is the rendered version of the it.

If you look at the "view source", you will see :
<div> "<li>First line</li>"</div>

Pay attention to the quotation mark, that forces the browser to treat it as a string. That is wrong. How do I fix it?
