I have been told this is hard to do but we would love it if the addition of .FirstParagraph didn't remove all styling/images/links and turn it all into boring text! I've had the opposite problem with Joomla and realise the issues with tags closing and not closing and breaking pages, but some kind of fix would be awesome :)
Good call. We could probably look for matching tags to ensure that we didn't break XHTML validity.
Should the output include the <p> tag, though, or should we force designers to add that themselves? Removing them would give more control over the output, but you might wind up writing <p>$Content.FirstParagraph</p> all the time, which would get a bit annoying.
Ie, should $Content.FirstParagraph return this:
<p>My <b>styled</b> paragraph</p>
My <b>styled</b> paragraph
This has been improved for the HTMLText field type in the latest version.
