System Field description not well displayed



We are using JIRA 7.0.10

We have added a description in a Field Configuration for the system field attachment. This description is written in HTML :

Fill the <a href="/confluence/download/attachments/20381763/PForge_Project_Modification.xls">users list template</a> and attach it.<br>

But this description is not displayed in HTML in the associated screen. It is displayed in text as shown in the following picture



Is there any way to display this description in HTML format ?

Thanks in advance for your help

Best Regards

Thanks in advance

Best regards
