Sometimes (not always) some task-mails are not displayed correctly.


<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<xsl:stylesheet version="1.0" xmlns:xsl="" xmlns:msxsl="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:xslt" exclude-result-prefixes="msxsl" xmlns:nex="nowshare:xslt-extension">
    <xsl:template name="Form">
                        <xsl:value-of select="$something"/>
                    <xsl:value-of select="//Field[@ref='something']" disable-output-escaping="no" />

It happens that html elements are (sometimes half) interpreted as text.


td>My Value 1: my value 2


b>My Value 1: my value 2

even though it should look like:

My Value 1: my value 2

The e-mail source code looks like this:

<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8">
        td&gt;<b>My Value 1</b></td>
        <td>my value 2</td>

I could not yet figure out what is going wrong.

I think I've figured it out. It works a lot better when accurate validated html code will be sent. I have supplemented my code like this:

<!DOCTYPE HTML><html><head><!-- --></head><body><!-- --></body></html>
