People Picker control in SharePoint 2010 Showing HTML tags in Custom List Forms.

When we create a Custom New, Edit or Display Form for SharePoint list or Library and we want to show the value of People Picker Control which is enabled for multiple users. In Most cases we get the error when show the item using Display Form we see the whole HTML tags with our value.

This is because by default rendering is no happening for incoming data in xslt.

<xsl :value-of select =”@Team_x0020_members”/>

We can enable rendering of incoming value in xslt by setting the value of disable-output-escaping to yes.

<xsl :value-of select =”@Team_x0020_members” disable-output-escaping=”yes” />

Your issue will be fix 🙂
