Some HTML won't display - can't work out why though

The following sample HTML won't display on the Rich Text Editor - it's come from the MVC RichTextEditor and displays fine there. 
It passes HTM5 validators ok without issue.
Anyone any thoughts?
<p><strong><span>INVENTORY / SCHEDULE OF CONDITION</span></strong></p>
<p><strong>MORETON STREET</strong></p>
<span>The following inventory</span>

Thanks. The example works - and I can see the difference is there is no carriage returns in the HTML. If these are placed back in, the rich text editor does not show any content. It seems quite random what works and what doesn't though as plenty of content works OK with carriage returns.

Modified example below:

namespace RTETextValue
    // Learn more about making custom code visible in the Xamarin.Forms previewer
    // by visiting https://aka.ms/xamarinforms-previewer
    public partial class MainPage : ContentPage
        public MainPage()
            rte.Text = "<p><strong><span>PROPERTIES</span></strong></p>\r\n\r\n<p><strong><span> INVENTORY / SCHEDULE OF CONDITION</span></strong></p>\r\n\r\n<p><strong> PROPERTY - ADDRESS:</strong></p>\r\n\r\n<p><strong> MORETON STREET </strong></p>\r\n<p><strong> Declaration </strong></p>\r\n\r\n<span> The following inventory</span> ";

            //rte.Text = "<b>hello</b>"; //THIS WORKS OK

Hi Nick, 
Thank you for the update. 
We were able to reproduce the issue with “RTE gets blank while setting the value with \r(carriage return)” and suspect this to be a defect. We will update you with further details on 14th January 2020.
