I have been trying to get HTML inserted into my webpage via sharepoint, as opposed to hard coding it in the layout page (for obvious reasons..).

I have tried using the Content Editor and entering the HTML, but it continuously displays the raw code as opposed to rending the HTML as I thought it would have.

Attached is a screenshot of the outcome. Is it that I'm missing a step or am I using the wrong approach to get this done?

Edit the content editor webpart and select "Edit Source" option from the ribbon.

Put your HTML there and save the page.

if you are using SharePoint 2013 you can use a Script Editor web part instead and put your HTML in that webpart
