Add HTML field editing to Excel for Work Items

When viewing/editing TFS work items in Excel, fields that are HTML type fields are read-only for existing work items. See the following blog: http://blogs.msdn.com/b/team_foundation/archive/2010/05/26/change-in-html-field-behavior-in-the-2010-tfs-excel-integration.aspx

Please modify TFS or Excel to allow cells to contain and allow editing of this HTML data in the next Visual Studio release.

    We don’t want to allow the user to modify the actual HTML in Excel. We have considered this scenario, but we think that the validity of the data is more important than the bulk update scenario.
