I'm a bit confused about the choices for text processing. I have a custom content type. I want the text input in the body field by users creating new content of my custom content type to be able to input html tags, so I taught the text format full HTML would be fitting, and I wanted it to always be set to this and for the users not to see the text format choice when creating new content. But the choices when editing the body field are "Plain text" or "Filtered text (user selects text format)".
The plain text choice make it so that the user can't see the text format drop down list when creating content, which is exactly what I wanted, but this choice seems to cause html tags to be rendered as just text, which I don't want. If making the other choice the user has to choose the the full HTML text format, which I don't want.
Are these really the only two choices or have I missed something? Can I have the body field to always be full HTML format without displaying any choice for text formats when creating new content? How would be the best way of doing it?
