HTML formatting in Description field .NET SDK

Does the .net SDK allow html to be in the Description field? We are having problems getting our Description fields (which have html formatting) to be posted to eBay. It strips out the html and jumbles the text and removes the images.

 

Here is an item we manually added to ebay site:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=130706224485&ssPageName=STRK:MESE:IT#ht_1213wt_1068

 

Here is item launched to eBay using the api and .net sdk:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=130708446555&ssPageName=STRK:MESE:IT#ht_500wt_1081

 

HELP!

Hi,

 

Below is the description you used in the API Call. Which ofcourse doesnt have any style information Nor Html text styles associated with it, This is the reason why your text is scattered. I advice you to use a WYSIWYG editor first -> get the html and then use in the API call.
