Html content in cards

I would like to reply with a card that has some basic HTML layout, similar to the built-in weather skill. However, all of the examples are simple text cards. I tried building the card text as an html string, and it didn't work.

At the moment it is not possible to display HTML in response cards. Hopefully, this will change but there is no indication if it will. It is one of the more requested features (see the Features Request and Feedback forum: https://forums.developer.amazon.com/forums/forum.jspa?forumID=124).

As Greg said, this currently isn't possible. Fingers crossed HTML support (or at least some amount of Markdown syntax) will be added in the near future.
