Is there an editor available in the Form View Builder for editing HTML fields? If not, is there a way to use the Editor-TextBox to edit a field that contains HTML data?

I have web application for a regular desktop browser use that has a field called 'Description' The field is used to describe various tasks. It is a 'text area' field and uses the HTML pop-up editor so colors, font size, etc can be added for the field.
I am now working on an app for mobile use. It has the ability to change the 'Description' field. But, using the form View control with the text box editor it shows all the html code such as <b>, </b>, etc.
How can I set the editor to handle html?

Thanks,
Mike

I added a Textbox Editor and changed the control to TextArea. Although not in the example posted, I did try checking the property for HTML editor and it seems to be pretty good.
