Unable to import data with HTML tags to Test Script and Test Case Description fields using RQMExcelImporter

We are importing Test Artifacts from Excel sheet using RQMExcelImporter.
While importing Test cases and Test Scripts using RQMExcelImporter we have test cases and Test scripts Description html tags like <b>, <i>, <u> etc. We are unable to import the description with the HTML(C) column directive in the config file, while the same is working nicely for Test Script Step and other fields in the same import.
The description becomes empty. But importing it with a simple directive imports the description but treats HTML tags as text.

This is working as designed.
The artifact description field is a plain text field. This change was performed to prevent the XSS attacks.

As a alternate, you could create custom rich text section in the test artifact and import the data to it.
