I'm successfully importing an XML files into Sharepoint as wiki pages, following this template. However, the HTML that's in the XML is being imported as text, so my page reads "<p>Hello World</p>...". Is there a way to tell Sharepoint to interpret the field as HTML?

Note: in order to import the text using XML, I had to convert '<' and '>' into &#60;and &#62;. I did convert those characters back using replace


When using html code into XML files, you usually need to use the "CDATA tag" stuff.

  • Hi @william Bernal, Thanks for the input, but I want to do the opposite of what I understand CDATA to do. Sharepoint is currently interpreting all my markup as plain text, but I WANT it to be interpreted as HTML. Apr 7 '16 at 15:36
