Special characters < > causes data to be become missing in Grid

Some of our data gets removed / truncated when added to the Grid.

Say a column has data in it like "<defunct> data" ... when it is loaded into the Grid it shows as "data". When you export the grid it is fine and shown as "<defunct> data". Are special characters causing an issue for the Grid.

Cheers ... Rob.

Hi Rob,
We have achieved your requirement using “disableHtmlEncode” property, which is used to disable encoding html elements in records. Please refer to the below code example and Help document as below, 
Code example:

{ field: "CustomerID", headerText: 'Customer ID', validationRules: { required: true, minlength: 3 }, width: 90,disableHtmlEncode:true },
