In the Kendo Editor documentation it says the following:
The editor value will be posted as a string and mapped to a variable with the name of the widget. Note that the posted value is HTML-encoded by default, in order to circumvent the ASP.NET request validation. In order to decode the value, use the HttpUtility.HtmlDecode method. (http://docs.telerik.com/kendo-ui/aspnet-mvc/helpers/editor/overview)
This works fine when I place the editor in a normal view such as Edit.cshtml; however, when I use a Grid and provide a custom popup editor template, I cannot use a Kendo Editor without specifying [AllowHtml] on the model. Why is this?
