You can specify the AttributeValue "OuterHtml" and then specify something in the OuterHtml property, however you cannot go up to the Parent's OuterHtml. If you need to do that, you may need to alter the hierarchy of your adapter (i.e. interrogate the parent that you need and then move the child beneath it in the os file). There's not a great way to demonstrate that without being hands-on though. The gist is that you move the control within the os file (which is just xml) to the correct place under the new parent control. I would suggest you practice on a simple adapter where you have interrogated only a couple items to see how it works.
