<h4>NOTE:</h4> <p>If you select <strong>My Contacts only</strong> in step 6, replies will be sent <strong>only</strong> to contacts that exist in your Contacts folder.<br /><br /></p> <h3>Using Rules With Automatic Replies</h3> <p>It is also possible to use rules to manage your messages while you are out of office. For example, you can create rules to automatically move or copy messages to other folders, to delete messages, to send custom replies, and so on.</p> <ol style="list-style-position: inside;"><li>

I'm not sure about that one, I use the  Source Editor frequently and so that is my recommendation 

Hi, one solution could be to use the Source Editor [1].


The source editor is available on 'existing' pages, so create a blank page, give it a title and save it. Then open it back up for editing, top right of the page will be the source symbols <> , click that, then paste in your html there. Save the page. Result is formatted page without the visible HTML tags.
