I think it would be a really good idea to somehow better format the tag info boxes. Currently they just look like wall-o-texts that you'd rather not read at all. –  Peter Ajtai Aug 26 '10 at 21:38

I part fixed this yesterday ... this issue appears for any wikis shorter than 460 chars.

I just committed a fix to dev.

Markdown just is not interpreted in the tag info box, but changing to "about the [tag] tag" it is and will appear correctly. This is browser independent.

It would be much better if markdown were interpreted, but as it takes a substring of certain length to limit the size of the info box, formatting could blow the box up in size. Also, too much formatting could overemphasize the box. I would propose a stripped version without formatting to keep the box as little intrusive as possible.
