Most business applications allow users to enrich the data by adding additional context (like comments and feedback). Often, business applications store this additional context as HTML formatted text. This allows the user to not only include the content, but also apply all kinds of formatting to the content (like Bold, Italic, lists, tables, etc.). The Shielded HTML Viewer for Power BI brings this context directly into your reports and dashboards.
Being able to show this additional context adds value to reports and dashboard, as it helps the readers to better understand the presented figures.
The Shielded HTML Viewer will seamlessly display any HTML-5 formatted text next to other figures in your Power BI reports.
The Shielded HTML Viewer for Power BI will only process and render HTML-tags and -attributes that are specified in our allow-list. This to mitigate potential security risks (such as inline scripting). The Shielded HTML Viewer ignores any tag or attribute not specified on the allow-list.
The HTML5-elements which are allowed by the Shielded HTML Viewer are:
Content sectioning: h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6
Text content: blockquote, dd, div, dl, dt, hr, li, ol, p, pre, ul
Inline text semantics: a, b, br, code, em, i, q, s, small, span, strong, sub, sup, wbr
Table content: caption, col, colgroup, table, tbody, td, tfoot, th, thead, tr
