HTML Table in Approval Details



I've got a flow that gets some Sharepoint items, appends them all to an HTML table using the Data Operations function, and then sends the output in the detail portion of an approval, as well as in the body of an email. The formatting of the table in the email body works fine but under the details section in my approval I get the formatting is messed up like this:

"<table><thead><tr><th>ItemNumber</th><th>PartNumber</th><th>Quantity</th><th>Priority</th><th>Notes</th></tr></thead><tbody><tr><td>1</td><td>123</td><td>5Each</td><td>Immediate Future</td><td>Item #1</td></tr><tr><td>2</td><td>456</td><td>10Inches</td><td>Immediate Future</td><td>Item #2</td></tr><tr><td>3</td><td>789</td><td>15Kilograms</td><td>Immediate Future</td><td>Item #3</td></tr></tbody></table>"
Does anyone know how I would format this correctly?

Hi @StevenF19 


What is the issue?

Email not showing html ?

Share screenshot of issue 

The formatting is all wrong in the approval details but in body of the email it shows up fine.



Hi @StevenF19 


although it states markup supported but it seems to be not doing so

Might be a bug to report

I am having the same issue

I tried with a simple <b>hello</b> markup

Will this be fixed any time soon? I haven't been able to find a workaround and this is preventing me from being able to roll out an approval function for one of my Powerapps.
