The project management application uses rich text in most of the documents (e.g. project, release, discussion, defect). In these rich text fields it needs to be possible to pass in HTML code that is rendered as HTML so that you can embed YouTube videos, Slideshare decks etc. At the same time however users need to be able to paste HTML and XSP code that is rendered as text, for example when reporting defects.

So far HTML code was always rendered as HTML which for example made it impossible to paste XSP code in defects. We've changed this now. HTML code that needs to be interpreted as HTML can be marked via '[' and ']'. HTML text without this convention is rendered as text.

The blue question mark icons for rich text fields bring up this description.
