Non-supported field type HTML

Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 was unable to backup because of a field type 'HTML' error. To resolve this, you have to remove the “rogue” references to the content type. It's not a pretty process, but it did work. You may have to write up some code to identify which lists are referencing the bad content type if you have a huge site. Just make sure you back everything up before mucking around in the SharePoint database.

This was the original error I had:

Field type HTML is not installed properly. Go to the list settings page to delete this field.    at Microsoft.SharePoint.SPFieldCollection.CreateSPField(Int32 index)
