Content of html field being "corrected" by GF? [RESOLVED]

I’m opening two divs in an html field at the beginning of the form and close them in a second GF html field later on. Rather simple, I thought.

However, it seems that GF automatically closes the div in the first html field.
Is there a way to prevent GF from doing that?

Can you export this form (instructions) and send the JSON file via email to Thank you.

sorry. I had a mistake in my thinking. A correction of invalid html has not taken place here at all.

I thought the html field would only put the content of the field into the code. Instead the html field creates a div that encloses my html code. Leaving a div open and closing it later further down the form is not possible that way.
