Forcing HTML Data to Render Properly

If the data in your database looks like "<b>SomeValue</b> or other HTML, you have to do something to prevent the browser from showing the tags, when you want just to display the HTML. Here's how to do it:
    under <asp:GridView>--> <Columns>
          <table width=100% border=0 cellPadding=0 cellSpacing=0>
          <td width=100% runAt=server id="cellNotes" InnerHtml='<%#Eval("notes")%>'></td>
"Notes" is a field name in the table containing HTML data.

Author's Note: This tip is applicable only in ASP.NET 2.0.
