Issues with RichHtmlField and upgrading

Well, its not really an issue if the site column is defined properly. I ran into a case with a customer where they wanted to upgrade their SharePoint 2007 solution to 2010 and during this upgrade, we found that RichHtmlField controls only displayed plain text instead of rendered HTML for custom site columns that had Type=”HTML”.

The problem was that these site columns were defined without specifying the RichText=”True” or RichTextMode=”FullHtml” attributes originally.
Adding these values turned horrible HTML into pretty text and all was well with the world.
