JSON formatting: add support RTF multiline text fields
JSON formatting supports a few field types, but currently we cannot do any kind of JSON treatment on multiline RTF columns.
The JSON formatting framework outputs @currentField as text inside the selected elmType.
I propose two possibilities which are not mutually exclusive to improve compatibility:
this elmType would assume the content of the @currentField to be well-formed html, and just use that at the column cell's content.
This selector would treat the contents of the currentfield as well-formed html, and would allow it to be inserted inside an elmType.
Bonus points if the html tree can be traversed using object notation as well.

This would be very useful. Were building an integration currently where this features would be much appreciated.
I totally support this. Lately, this has been a show stopper for me to use List to store and publish data in a nice published format. I don't have any more vote left to vote for this (which is really annoying! We should not be limited by number of votes we can vote). Spread the word and keep voting so Microsoft will add this feature :)

This has been killing me in our most recent project. Having the ability to format RTF so we can at least see all of the content would be huge!
Even just access to a DOMParser. Pretty please :)
