    • Product: MetaLib
    • Product Version: 4

    Description:
    In order to highlight certain text in the user interface(/V), the we entered HTML tags into the IRD > Presentation Primary > Description field.
    The code displays correctly (that is, the result of the code displays, not the actual HTML) in all but 1 place.
    The effect of the HTML code should be to highlight selected text about the resource and provide live, clickable links.
    CORRECT
    Find Database > Results > Table View
    Find Database > Results > Table View > Database details/"i" click
    Find Database > Results > Table View > Database details/"i" click
    QuickSets > Search > Set Detail/click set name > Database details/"i" click (information display box)
    Search Multiple Databases (= MetaSearch) > Search > Search Type = QuickSets > Database details/"i" click
    Search Multiple Databases (= MetaSearch) > Search > Search Type = My Databases > Database details/"i" click
    Search Multiple Databases (= MetaSearch) > Search > Search Type = Subjects > Database details/"i" click
    Search Multiple Databases (= MetaSearch) > Search > Search Type = by Keyword > Database details/"i" click
    My Research (= My Space) > My Databases > Clipboard > Database details/"i" click
    INCORRECT
    Find Database > Search in DB

    Resolution:
    Using HTML code or tags in the Description field is a high priority Enhancement Request which is expected in next released version (4.3) at the end of March 2009.
