Problem with Custom Dashboard Widget Settings

Installed and was formatting text in box using HTML. That appeard to be working, but then I changed some of the text using the "Configure" link in the Dashboard and it lost all theHTML formating. Went back into the Settings >> Dashboard widget area, my HTML is intact but without the changes. Entered the changes here, hit Save and in Dashboard my changes appear but again all formatting is lost.
