we know that h:outputText prints the text on the browser output. What if the text itself contain html tags?

I am getting a String which looks something like this: "Hi <b>Guest</b>,<br> welcome to our agreement page.<br>"

When I show it through h:outputText, it shows exactly the String including the html tags. How can I show it in the screen in the formatted way, i.e. the tags will not be shown, rather show like this:

Hi Guest,

welcome to our agreement page.

========================================

Any idea?

use escape="true" attribute in outputText like this:
<h:outputText value="<b>Guest</b>" escape="true"/>
 
My first bit of advice is that if you are going to be a mime, you shouldn't talk. Even the tiny ad is nodding:
