Bug with IMAGE Formula field and Visualforce



I have created a formula field that uses the IMAGE() function to dynamically show an image on a record detail page.  This appears to work fine.  My problem occurs when I use an outputField to try and show this formula field on my visualforce page - I just get the html code written as text instead of the actual image.


Is this a bug or just some issue with how the visualforce page handles security issues?


This is a bug. Same thing happens if the formula field has the HYPERLINK function. It displays the code rather than a clickable URL.


This bug actually affects some of SFDC own apps such as Ideas which is based on VF.


My case was marked as Bug Fix Submitted back in February but no updates since. Case #02458328
