While editing a project form, I accidentally deleted the <h1> tag from the 'name' field. Now the project name appears as regular text in the form view. I tried using the node type html_tag and got the error message "Can't Update View".

Again you can add h1 tab in view.
Add following code.

    <field name="name" class="oe_inline" readonly="1"/>

Sudhir, how can I add h1 tab in the view? Is there another way besides using view editor? Or if I use view editor, what node type should I use?
