Custom field html displays as text

I am converting a custom field from a SharePoint 2007 version to SharePoint 2013. The field works correctly in SP2007. In SP2013 it has the correct information but displays as text instead of html. I have set the "disable-output-escaping" in the
xsl to "yes" but it does not help. Here the xml and xsl data for the field.
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>
    <Field Name="TypeName">PriorityIndicator2</Field>
    <Field Name="ParentType">Text</Field>
    <Field Name="TypeDisplayName">Priority Indicator</Field>
    <Field Name="TypeShortDescription">Priority Indicator</Field>
    <Field Name="UserCreatable">TRUE</Field>
    <Field Name="Sortable">TRUE</Field>
    <Field Name="AllowBaseTypeRendering">TRUE</Field>
    <Field Name="Filterable">TRUE</Field>
    <Field Name="FieldTypeClass">Company.WebParts.PriorityIndicator2, $SharePoint.Project.AssemblyFullName$</Field>
    <Field Name="FieldEditorUserControl">/_controltemplates/15/PriorityIndicator2FieldEditor.ascx</Field>
    <Field Name="CAMLRendering">TRUE</Field> 
    <RenderPattern Name="DisplayPattern">
 <Column HTMLEncode="FALSE" />
<xsl:stylesheet xmlns:x=""
                exclude-result-prefixes="xsl msxsl ddwrt"
  <xsl:template match="FieldRef[@Name = 'PriorityIndicator2]" mode="Text_body">
    <xsl:param name="thisNode" select="." />
    <span style="background-color:lightgreen;font-weight:bold">
      <xsl:value-of select="$thisNode/@*[name()=current()/@Name]" disable-output-escaping="yes" />
  </xsl:template >
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

According to your post, my understanding is that the custom field not render html well.
As you have known, we can use the “disable-output-escaping” to render the html, however, it not works in your environment.
As a workaround, we can use JQuery to render the html, I have made a simple code snippets to achieve this scenario, you can refer to it.
<script src="" type="text/javascript"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">
var theTDs = $("td[id='SPFieldCustom']");
TDContent = theTDs.text();
Note: You should change the id to fit your environment.
