Rich text editor content to excel with same font display

I have code in C# to write values in worksheet. Source of the value is from Rich text editor which needs to be displayed on excel file but I am not able to display the exact view of the text. I have tried the following -

HTML String :  <p><span style=\"color: rgb(255, 0, 0); text-decoration: inherit;\">COLORED</span>TEXT</p>

  1. worksheet.Range[$"H12"].Text = value => gives me exact html code in sheet  <p><span style=\"color: rgb(255, 0, 0); text-decoration: inherit;\">COLORED</span>TEXT</p 
  2. worksheet.Range[$"H12"].HtmlString = value => gives me just text COLORED TEXT without the color
There is example to save html table but this is from richtexteditor and I have to fill one cell with the value, so need help with this. Thanks in advance.

Hi Avinash,

By default, The content styles of Rich Text Editor are not returned while retrieving HTML value from the editor. So, the styles are not applied when using the HTML value outside of the editor. To get the styles to Rich Text Editor’s content for your application, You can copy and use the styles directly in your application. 

Note: Make sure to add a CSS class ‘e-rte-content’ to the content container.

Please check the below documentation for further information,

Hi Vinitha,

I am getting the values from react application in front end by richtexteditor and I don’t see these css classes applied in the content. As mentioned in my question I have values with property style and color set to red but when I add this content to excel I see only text.

I am using syncfusion xlsio for adding content to excel in backend C#.

I can see an example to insert html table values to excel in C# but not for the html content to worksheet range. Could you please provide an example for that similar to Importing HTML table to excel but it should be html content to excel worksheet range.
