The ASPxMemo editor converts service characters (for instance, < and >) in its content to character entity references (&lt; and &gt;) and displays HTML code as text. Set the EncodeHtml property to false to prevent such a convertion and render editor content as HTML markup:

<dx:ASPxMemo ID="memo1" EncodeHtml="False" runat="server" />
