Problem with HTML formatted output

Has anyone run into a problem where the output of a wysywig field displays the contents as html entities (eg. </p>) instead of printing regular html? Here's my code:

Class file:
function LeftColumn() {
   $data = DataObject::get_one("ProjectsHolder");
   $results = DataObject::get("Page", "FeatureInLeftColumn = 1 AND ParentID = $data->ID", "Title DESC", "", $num);
   return $results;

<% control LeftColumn %>
<% end_control %>

It works fine except $PageTeaser (a wysiwyg field) converts the html in the field to html entities as if it were a code example. The actual data in the field is fine. Any suggestions as to what could be wrong?

Have look at the data-type of your field.

It is probably a Textfield... If so , change it to an HTMLText field.
