Handling HTML in an field

Contributor

I just got my Qualys TA to start pulling the full KB down, but now I see it uses HTML in several of the fields. What's the best way to display this to my end users? Here's an example. I've seen the answer here that proposes using Sideview. I might look into that, but I was hoping for a more straightforward method. Anyone have any ideas?

I decided to use this a good reason to build my first app. I've submitted it to SplunkBase. In the meantime, it's posted over here: https://github.com/rubix1138/html2text
