playing a bit with 2.5.5, I tried to create a Safecracker form with a RTE field. But when I edit an existing entry in this form, the HTML is displayed as HTML in the RTE box (see below), like if the content were double encoded or something.

enter image description here

How can I solve that?

[EDIT]: Little precision, this only happened with content saved from the control panel. Entries created or edited with the Safecracker form are correct (no html tags in the RTE).

[EDIT-BIS]: It is probably a bug, I posted it here: https://support.ellislab.com/bugs/detail/19157

    I solve this problem by not using RTE. Seriously, I have never had any luck with it. I know this isn't an answer, just how I avoid stuff like this. Jan 25, 2013 at 13:55
  • @JustinKimbrell Yes I thought to use Wygman in the first place but I need to make a really cheap EE setup here. Maybe I should try Reedactor, but it's a bit frustrating.
