Display HTML content
When I feed this XML to the grid, the content is correctly displayed and the word "World" is in bold which is great. Of course, this is only a very simplistic example, in reality, the description contains elaborate HTML which may or may not be XHTML compliant and which may sometimes be extremely long.
I have observed four problems:
1) sometimes the browser (I am only testing with IE) will crash
2) sometimes the content of some rows will move one pixel up or down when I hover my mouse over the row.
3) tooltips are not good at displaying HTML, they will display the "raw" HTML including the "<" and ">" symbols.
4) tooltips do no like certain combination of characters and will truncate the text if they encounter certain combinations.
I am guessing that issue #1 is caused by the amount of HTML in one node and/or the total size of the XML. I have not been able to prove what the cause of this issue is but I know that if I remove the "description" node from the input XML, everything is fine.
Issue number two is probably caused by a conflict between some HTML in the "description" and CSS in the grid but once again I haven't been able to pinpoint the exact source. However I do know that this weird behavior goes away when I remove the "description" column from the grid.
Issues 3 and 4 appear to be limitations with tooltips that I must live with.
Anyway, I was just curious to hear if anybody else has seen these issues and if they found a solution. I am currently considering attempting to remove all HTML tags from the source. Please let mek now if anybody has comments of suggestions.
