Text formatting for workitem description in SBWP

In a workflow task I added a description for the task wehere I added an expression from the Workflow Container. This expression contains html. When I add this expression as comment (/*) the HTML is displayed very ba in SBWP.

The HTML Text seems correct:

<p><strong>Nein Nein Nein</strong></p>

If I add the this HTML Text directly as comment(/*) it is displayed with the correct formatting. Only when I use the Expression from the container(which contains the same value) it is displayed false.

My Description(bad formatting):

Anyone could help me with that problem? :-)

    When you are adding HTML Text in workflow work item text, try to add it using option 'Expression'.

    After clicking on Expression option it asks you which container elements you want to display in the work item. When you choose the appropriate element from the container, if it's a multi-line container element if asks you the options for displaying data such as -

    1.Only first line

    2.All lines as continuous text

    3.All lines with line break

    Select the required option and check whether you get the expected output in work item text.
