HTML content in wishes no longer displayed
September 2nd, 2007
Some users have been sneaky and clever and found ways to mark up their wish list entries to format the text or even *gasp* display images in their wishes. I too like the freedom to make things pretty, where appropriate, but the fact of the matter is that a typing or cut-and-paste mistake can mess up a user's entire wish list or even worse: mess up your wishes as returned in search results. So, I've had to clamp down and strip HTML tags from wish records. Anyone relying on markup in wish title or author fields to display wishes as stricken should probably completely remove those wishes, because the strike-out effect has been negated, as of today.
