Interpreting CSS in a layout

I'm using the solution proposed here: https://fmdev.filemaker.com/message/88823#88823

 

Basically I'm using ExecuteSQL to build a list which I then display on a layout. I need to carry formatting through the ExecuteSQL function, but ExecuteSQL strips the formatting. So the suggestion is to convert the formatting to CSS. The CSS tags survive the ExecuteSQL function, but then the field that I've got on my layout displays those tags verbatim, without converting them back to their intended styles!

 

Is there any way to interpret CSS in a layout, so the styles are displayed rather than the tags that represent those styles?

 

Alternatively, is there a way of building a list on a layout without using ExecuteSQL? The only reason we're using ExecuteSQL is to build the list, so if there's another way to do that, this issue could be avoided. Portals won't work, because the list is appearing inside a portal, and portals can't be nested.
