Default HTML value for LargeText

Dear all,

In Agile 9.3.4 I need to define a custom HTML as default value for a LargeText field.

Looking the documentation, it should be possible:

<<Maximum characters = 4000.
The Agile administrator can enter text with simple HTML markup.
Note: Java Client does not include an HTML markup tool. HTML must be entered manually or pasted from another source.
If invalid values are entered, then the default text is discarded the first time the object is edited.>>

Although I enter any kind of html as Default Value, the following Error is displayed when i try to save it in the Java Client:

Please don’t include HTML in Default Value.


I tried values like:
and so on..

but the same error is displayed, Even encoding them…

Do you know how enter HTML value as default value in a Large Text field? (without considering neither “hacking” the DB nor eventPX)?

Many Thanks

For whom is interested on that topic, I received an answer from Oracle, saying that this cannot be done  in 9.3..4,5, and 6 version.
There is an enhancement request created on November but it is still under review:

So probably it is not possible to set HTML as Default Value for Large Text using official ways 🙂
