I have a RTF with html code in it:

<button>Click Me</button>

It there any way to pull in a mergeField containing HTML and have it display as if it was typed into the template?

When using a VF Template it still outputs like this:

If you use a Visualforce Email Template, you can use <apex:outputText value="{!Object.Field__c}" escape="false"/>

You cannot do it without using a Visualforce Email Template
