SharePoint: People Picker values displaying HTML Syntax in DispForm

I created a new DispForm.aspx for a document library and the people picker fields (multiple selection), by default, were displaying the HTML Syntax.

Luckily it was a really easy fix ツ

  1. Open SharePoint Designer and navigate to the library.
  2. Open the display form in Advance Mode
  3. Find the XSL code for the particular people picker
<xsl:value-of select=”@Team_x0020_Members”/>
  1. Add the following code to the end of the Tag
disable-output-escaping=”yes”
  1. The end result should look like this:
<xsl:value-of select=”@Team_x0020_Members”/>
