Issue

When passing HTML into a Rich Text control with the Literal setting configured, there is an extra line space that is added.

Symptoms

The issue is due ot how the Rich Text control parses HTML. The extra line space is added similar to below.

This is Line 1

This is Line 2

This is Line 3

Resolution

Nest the <div> tags in a <div> tag with "white-space: nowrap;" styling it will remove the extra white space and get rid of the extra lines. 

Example:

<div style="white-space: nowrap;">
<div><em>this is line item 1</em></div>
<div>this is line item 2</div>
<div><strong>this is line item 1</strong></div>
</div>
