It's not supposed to 'take' for description fields: the description is
meant as a markup-free description of an object that can be shown
everywhere. It is used in title attributes for tags, in search results,
it can be chopped at different lengths, etc. In other words: it is a
simple text field, not a rich text field which does support markup
