Joomla field types clear my html

Trying to make a component and can't remember how to store HTML code when the save command is clicked (ie. submitted from a PHP form). This is for the Opensource Content Management System (CMS - phew what a mouthful) Joomla! version 1.6.x to 2.5.x; no wonder customers have difficulty following.

So it's the field on the XML file /models/forms/whatever.xml which needs the filter=raw attribute, for example:
<field name="item_desc" type="editor" filter="raw" rows="15" cols="40" default="" />
  1.  <field name="item_desc" type="editor" filter="raw" rows="15" cols="40" default="" />
