Description

The Description area in bug viewing form is inside a <pre> tag.  It might be a good idea to make it wrapped.

But that tends to lose information.  Sometimes important information can be
found in the linebreaks.  I also believe that we tend to wrap things when you
type them, so that long lines won't get into the database.  But I don't remember
for sure, so I'm testing it with this paragraph...

Yes, it does, so I'm marking this INVALID.
Verif, but see also bug #11901.

Terry, surely you can do a conversion to HTML paragraphs?

Sorry.  Verif.

Not everything is nice text paragraphs!  For example, sometimes:

- People list items out separately (like this!)
- or they do ASCII artwork
- or other things.

Converting back and forth is a hard problem.  Right now, Bugzilla just says
"everything is plaintext, stored pre-wrapped in the database".  A fine, 
consistant model.  Other consistant models are possible, but they are
different, and converting between them is not trivial.
