Not only doesn't it work, it shouldn't work. Letting your users
type arbitarty HTML (or *any* HTML, in my opinion) into database
fields is a very bad idea. If you really want to give them the
functionality to have bold tags etc in database fields, parse
the database fields into an XML document fragment, and let the
fragment flow through cocoon like the rest of your content.

If you're using XSP to generate the content, see the FAQ entry:
