    Hi Arno, this is a great plugin. Will it work for Tag Descriptions too? It seems to partly work for me, but still strips out <p> tags for some reason!

    Yes, as far as I know newlines are automatically used to split the text into paragraphs. Is this your experience as well?

    Can you send me some samples or a place to view it?

    Cool! Well, yeah, it does seem to work, but it's stripping the p and br tags. Here's an example:


    The area at the top is coming from the tag description (including the banner image). Note there are no paragraph breaks. I've tried all kinds of crazy things including putting <div> around them with margins and stuff. Nothing works.

    Can you post the code you put into the category description? I can see paragraphs in the current output.

    Sure! Here it is... so, obviously *some* of the code comes through, but it's impossible to get any space between paragraphs. I've tried to add stylesheet info - both by making up classes p class = whatever, or divs, and using multiple br tags... using stylesheets both embedded in the description and remote... nothing works. Very odd.

    It's totally nuts. Even if I place a whole giant DIV around it all, which doesn't get stripped, it seems to have no effect!

    ha! I found a hack solution. If I just at &nbsp; on its own line, then things work. Still kinda drives me nuts, but at least the problem is sorta solved.
