Trados: how to handle HTML

Hello Everybody!

I hope you could help me with the following. I'm trying to create a usable ttx or sdlxliff having as a source 1 xls file containing several columns and numerous html tags.

Basically the text looks like this:

div id="{{tab1Anchor}}" class="contenttab"
h3>Création de société à SingapourSingapour est une destination clé de par sa position aux portes aériennes des flux asiatiques.  Bénéficiant à la fois d’une notoriété grâce à sa réussite économique, Singapour est bien souvent montrée en exemple pour son urbanisation qui s’entremêle magnifiquement avec une végétation magnifique./p>

(I have removed several < signs to show the tags)

- and when I'm creating a bilingual file, Trados does not recognize all the HTML tags and converts it in translatable text.

Is there any method to let him replace all the HTML stuff by a corresponfing tag? Or to do something in order to create a usable bilingual file and not an incomprehensible thing.

Many thanks in advance for your help/advices!
