We just released soapegate Q! 2.6.1 on OpenNTF.org.
With this release we added support for Richtext fields. The two web service operations dbreaddocfields and dbreadprofilefields will convert any requested richtext field to HTML.
We also added a rendering options field in the configuration profile (this refers to the $$HTMLOptions field).
In this release we do not yet convert HTML back to richtext when using the dbsavedocfields and dbsaveprofilefields. Saved HTML content is saved as pass through HTML.
