I mention this only because it is an issue that should be addressed:
personally it seems more of a pain than anything else.
Text that I use to construct the contents of the documentation tag
This is the text I mean
occasionally has embedded html in it, mostly the <b></b> and <i></i>
needed to do paper references. These tags are technically illegal in
our xml document, so I am supposed to change the < and > to an entity
and then it will parse. That, however, changes the meaning of the
string, i.e. HTML no longer thinks they are tags, either. I could take
the tags out, but then I lose meaning, albeit not a lot.
So could we allow some formatting in the documentation? Alternatively,
can we allow meaningless tags as far as XML is concerned?
