    I have received response from the Development Team and as per them since the Html file that you are trying to load in RichTextBox control is generated by a third party tool (CKEditor) and we do not support all third party tools, it is a current limitation of RichTextBox.
    However, in the fall we will have a utility that will give you the ability to migrate your RPX files to RDLX. And off course RDLX will have the FormattedText control which would probably work better for you.
    Sorry for the inconvenience caused to you regarding this issue.

    Thats disappointing,

    Please ask the dev team to test the html in the FormattedText control, specifically the output excel vs word vs pdf. Only Excel is correct, Its possible the issues in the word output are related to the issues in RTF output of the section reports, maybe they can fix both at the same time?

    I attached an rdl report which shows the issue, also the preview is slightly wrong, the % sign is on the wrong side of the number, as you can see in the screenshot.

    The fact that the html comes from ckeditor isn’t a great excuse either, as long as its valid html it shouldn’t matter where it comes from.
    Can you provide html which gives the desired outcome in both a browser and a SectionReport RTF control?
    I entered the html into https://validator.w3.org and (after adding doctype and title) it is valid.

    We tested the html using the FormattedText control for Word, Excel and Pdf and we could observe the difference between the outputs. And I could also observe that the FormattedText preview for the html file is also slightly wrong (% symbol is on the wrong side) hence I am discussing the same with the Development team.

    Also I have attached a html file giving the desired outcome in both, browser and SectionReport RTF control.
