Can you please correct two things:

1) Right Now you see:

Show ___ characters for article title

Wouldn't it be better - especially for a block - to have:

Show ___ Characters from the article Description

or have the option to show the article description.

2) When you show XXX characters, it is improperly formatted because it shows things like font and b for bold etc. (I can't put the actual characters)

Thanks

This was a trade-off as not everyone enters a description. It is something that will improved at some point.

The problem is, if the text is truncated before the closing tag of a link, or text format, etc., it will cause HTML formatting problems elsewhere on the page, hence the reason for not allowing HTML in the block text.

This is, again, something that will be improved - I'm just not exactly sure how I will do this just yet.
