When browsing through questions on SO, the 2 line preview is often helpful, especially with poorly worded titles. However, when these first 2 lines contain
code or bold text or some other formatting, it makes the text difficult to read. Is it possible to maintain the formatting for those lines?
I know there are problems with line breaks, but comments work well with limited formatting capabilities. If that can also be used for the 2 line preview, it would be very helpful. However, if that slows servers down considerably or has other negative consequences, that would be nice to know. I do prefer function over form(atting).
