Blog summary snippets that are displayed on the java.net home page and the
blogfront page currently use an html-stripped snippet taken from the beginning
of the blog body. It is more customary to use the Description/Blurb field for
blog summary displays.
However, HTML must be stripped from the Description/Blurb field before the data
is displayed on the java.net front or blogfront pages.
If the user did not enter a Description/Blurb, either the beginning of the body
could be displayed (as is currently done), or nothing will be displayed (and
blogger will be instructed to use the Description/Blurb field by the editor).
