In this case lets assume we have ABC WoC.

  4. In Overview tab you will have XYZ text field
  5. Open the XYZ field, it show HTML tags similar to as below

 "<div><p><span style="font-family: arial ; font-size: 36pt"></span><spa:"


In the standard OWL, the field type will be of Static type.

For the Static type textEdit ,control and formatting is enabled, so this field values will have tags.


From Standards,there is no feature available in extensibility to remove the tags.

In accordance to the system design, HTML tags are expected to appear.
