Markdown seems not to work in tag information excerpts

I tried the new tag wiki tonight on the ActiveSync tag. I added some hyperlinks yet when this formatting was applied, it did not show in the tag wiki summary for the ActiveSync tag. The tag wiki uses the same markup as questions and answers so I assume this also would be permitted. It shows under 'Tag Info' instead.

Could we have the same markup show in the summary as is in the Tag Info? I doubt many people will actually click on the Tag Info link so the markup should be shown IMHO.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

It used to be - as you can see here - that at least in some cases markup was not interpreted, but shown plain, which was very ugly. Since then formatting has been stripped in the preview box for tag wiki - to make it non-intrusive, I would guess.

This is intentional, the excerpt is used by the tag hover and summary area. We need to keep it concise and text only so it renders well in both these formats.
