Created attachment 149789 [details]

I like to change the long description of plugin
to the following text.

But there is an application error while saving. See screenshot. What is wrong?
This plugin helps you to apply to a common code style in a team of Eclipse JDT and NetBeans IDE users. The original formatting engine of Eclipse is embedded and allows you to format the sourcecode the same way as your Eclipse co-workers do. You only have to provide an Eclipse formatter configuration file.
<font color="red">Plugin is in still experimental state. Known issue: When the Eclipse formatter is used all the line-breakpoints in the file are lost. Class/Method/Field breakpoints will be preserved.</font>
<li>Global configuration and project specific configuration</li>
<li>Supports profiles (since 1.6)</li>
<li>On save action (Disabled by default)</li>
<li>Shows the used formatter as notification  (Enabled by default)</li>
<li>Supports format of selected text (since 1.7)</li>
<li>Preserve breakpoints (experimental) (since 1.8)</li>

Please note that this plugin only provides support for formatting. Eclipse users may miss the application of save-actions like "adding @Override annotations" or "member sort order". Such AST-based transformations are not provided by this plugin. The plugin also won't format source code with guarded sections - like the Java sources generated by the NetBeans GUI builder.

Your validator seems to get confused, when there are "many" links.

I reproduced this error. Honzo, can you please investigate what's wrong with the description? Thanks!
