HTML tags in database

I put html tags in a longtext field in my database, but when I grab it
for the page it uses it as regualr text. How can I get the html tags
to be recognized?

<%= post.body %>

rhtml looks like:

<%= post.body %>

body may look like:

Hello, I’m a link!

output:

Hello, I’m a link!

Does anyone know of a way to accomplish this.

Thanks
