I have a list with some text columns as Rich Text. I need to edit the HTML behind the scenes.

Is there a way to do it?

Go to the list and edit the item(s) in question. Or do you mean something different with like Powershell like described in this post? – Eric Alexander Aug 3 '11 at 16:57
Can you explain what you mean by "behind the scenes"? – Laurie Aug 3 '11 at 18:02
when I edit via Edit Properties - it gives me the editor; I;d like to change HTML of the content – IMHO Aug 4 '11 at 19:42
no this is not giving me HTML since it's Rich Text col not Enhanced – IMHO Aug 4 '11 at 19:43
So you mean something along the lines of the HTML editor or Source editor in a Content Editor web part? – Eric Alexander Aug 4 '11 at 19:51

May be ribbon will solve your problem?

yes, sure - the trick was to change column text mode from Rich text to Enhanced. There is still no way to edit HTML of a Rich text column. – IMHO Aug 10 '11 at 13:37
