I use a Report Viewer winform control (Microsoft.ReportViewer.WinForms.dll 9.0.30729.4402) in my application to display a report with textboxes showing HTML placeholder contents as below. However, the characters are all showing as plain text. This does not occur on WebForm control of same version and Winform control on VS2010. 

textbox 1:

="<P>this is a test 1</P><P><U><FONT size=5>this is a test 2</FONT></U></P><P><EM><FONT color=#c00000><STRONG>this is a test 3</STRONG></FONT></EM></P><P>&nbsp;</P><P>&nbsp;</P>"

textbox 2:
="<P>this is a test 1</P><P><U>this is a test 2</U></P>"

="<P>this is a test 1</P><P><B>this is a test 2</B></P>"

Thank you for finding this issue. Fortunately we have fixed this in VS 2010. To workaround this issue, you can upgrade to VS2010 or later. You could also use the VS 2010 or later version of the control in VS 2008. If this isn't possible, you should open a case with CSS to investigate further and possibly request a backport for VS 2008.
