Load html to rich text field

Avatar

Level 1

Hello

In my xdp form I have a text field (named Comments) setting to rich text format. 

I receive a xml file , and in the Comments field of the xml I have html tags like <br/> or <b></b>.

 

How can I load the xml file correctly to the xdp field in order to keep the text well formatted?

Further, how can I send the less than signal (<) in that xml?

 

Many tanks
