This Field Type validates and stores structured rich text, and exposes it in several formats.
|Name||Internal name||Expected input|

|An instance of the Field Type's ||See the example below.|
Field Type works with XML and also expects an XML value as input, whether as a string,
DOMDocument object or Field Type's
Value object. When the value is given as a string or a
DOMDocument object, it will be checked for conformance with one of the supported input formats, then dispatched to the appropriate converter, to be converted to the Field Type's internal format. No conversion will be performed if providing the value in Field Type's internal format or as Field Type's
Value object. In the latter case it will be expected that
Value object holds the value in Field Type's internal format.
Currently supported input formats are described in the table below:
|eZ Publish Docbook variant||FieldType's internal format|
|XHTML5 editing format||Typically used with in-browser HTML editor|
|Legacy eZXML format||Compatibility with legacy eZXML format, used by XmlText Field Type |
Example of the Field Type's internal format
Example of the Field Type's XHTML5 edit format
This format is used by eZ Platform Online Editor and will change with its needs as we continue to evolve this part of the UI.
For more information about internal format and input formats, see Field Type's conversion test fixtures on GitHub.
For example, ezxml does not use explicit level attributes for <header> elements, instead <header> element levels are indicated through the level of nesting inside <section> elements.
Example of using XML document in internal format as a string
eZ\Publish\Core\FieldType\RichText\Value offers following properties:

REST API specifics
Creating or updating Content
When creating RichText content with the REST API, it is possible to provide data as a string, using the "
xml" fieldValue key:
When the value given over REST API is transformed into a Field Type's
Value object, it will be treated as a string. This means you can use any supported input format for input over REST API.
