html and OpenID

Title:
html and OpenID

Area:
OpenID

Summary:
I think you're going to develop a more receptive user base if you give OpenID folks the ability to use html in comments.

Description:
I recently had some OpenID folks expressing unhappiness with their inability to use html in a thread in my journal. I've already met with quite a bit of resistance to my decision to switch to dreamwidth from livejournal, and I suspect that others are meeting with similar resistance. I don't know whether OpenID is handled differently when posting to paid accounts (I do have a second account that is paid but have not done much with it so far). I think that at minimum you should try to fix this for paid account users, but will do best to elliminate the problem entirely.

Here's the thread: http://elusiveat.dreamwidth.org/325169.html?thread=1730609#cmt1730609

Note: I chose not to report this as a bug because I don't know whether it was a deliberate design decision.
