SharePoint XML Library - Rich Text Field

I'm recreating an InfoPath form in Power Apps - the form will be read-only in Power Apps.  The SharePoint source is a document library so the data is held as XML - though it appears in Power Apps as data from a normal SharePoint list. (to access the Power Apps form in SharePoint the users have to select the record, then select menu More\Properties).


The one issue I'm having is with a rich text field, which the users have pasted emails into - so it includes images, text formatting etc.  The data in Power Apps has all the formatting stripped so just displays the text with no line breaks - which is no good for the users.


I'm referencing the field as SharePointIntegration.Selected.Comments

Using controls Label, Rich Text Editor,  or HTML Text  all show the same - just plain text.  


BTW I'm not using DataCards as the form needed to be heavily customised to have the same look/feel as the InfoPath version.


Has anyone come across this before and/or know how to get around it?
