Allow formatting in comments


The comments are very difficult to read since no formatting is retained. Perhaps simple HTML or Wiki formatting could be allowed? Expressiveness is the root of communication, which is the bedrock of community. If CodePlex is going to be a great one, allow more expressiveness.

I might also offer the opinion that only bold, italics, workitem, wikipage and code quoting be allowed. The last thing I want is 1280x1024 screenshots of problems embedded in my project's comments.

Good point oisin -

These are really only the ones I was looking for...

At one point, I thought there were editing options at least in IE, now I don't get any formatting with either IE8 or FF.

Just the ability to add spaces would be handy so code snippets don't look lame...
