HTML in Reports

FCKEditor is so powerful, but, when weighed against the fact that CrystalReports understands only a limited set of HTML tags (crHTMLText text interpretation), the benifits diminish.

I've been trying for an hour to get the best of both words (FCKEditor, CrystalReports) with no real success. The HTML support in CrystalReports is quite basic and my HTML doesn't render correctly in the report.

I've tried also to use JasperReports instead of CR for more flexibility but it needs time to implement my own HTML2Text expression to wrap around the desired field.

Has anyone had any success in such scenarios where “beautiful” HTML shows up in reports?
