20.0.0 HTML and CSS Tags and Attributes Supported By Out Tags

Along with text and images, the Out Tag can also display HTML. In doing so, the HTML tags are converted to their Microsoft Office equivalents. For example, if an HTML snippet has a bold tag <b> applied it will convert the text it surrounds to be bold when displayed in Microsoft Office report template output.

Here is a list of supported HTML Tags and attributes. 

Don't forget you must set the Out Tag property type to TEMPLATE for the HTML to be properly interpreted. This functionality is not supported in PowerPoint Templates, so HTML will not be rendered.

Changes in Version 20.0.0

The HTML Tag had support added:

  • <br>

This CSS attribute was added for <ol> and <ul> tags:

  • list-style-type
