    I'm implementing HTML place holder for the first time. I looked at the examples  and it looks straight forward. 
    I'm getting the HTML from the radrichtextbox using html dataprovider. .I'm setting the
    RadHtmlPlaceholder.HtmlSource= html provided by the radrichtextbox html data provider (this dint work)

    But when I place a @"<html><b>test</> +html provided by the radrichtextbox+"</html> 


    If i put this tags around the string stream it works fine.


    When I copy paste the same text on browser and it does show fine. 

    Here is my code snippet.

    Any help would be appreciated. 

    xaml:
    <telerik:RadHtmlPlaceholder x:Name="RadHtmlPlaceholder" Margin="10" HorizontalAlignment="Stretch" VerticalAlignment="Stretch" RespectSilverlightLayoutMeasure="True" />

    code behind:
    public string HtmlSource {get;set;}
     public EmailHtmlPreview(string source) //constructor source is passed down to this window 
            {
                InitializeComponent();
                this.HtmlSource = source;
                Loaded += new RoutedEventHandler(LayoutRoot_Loaded);
            }

            void LayoutRoot_Loaded(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)
            {
                RadHtmlPlaceholder.HtmlSource = HtmlSource;  //binding to the property /* this dint                                                                                                                                             work*/
        /* but this worked*/
        RadHtmlPlaceholder.HtmlSource= @"<html><b>test</> +HtmlSource +"</html>   why ???

            }

         I want this to work without any hacks or tags around the actual dataEdit your post
