Yes, I figured you would mention that. :)

Saw it.

I don't knwo how you could strip the wiki markup, maybe
someone who is better with the core could give us a hint.

One thing you could do that would involve a convention,
would be to get people to place their text nicely into
anchored sections instead.

For example, wrap there descriptions with:

(:if false:)
[[#WhoAmI]]The only smart Doe (married into the family) test 3\\
with a 2nd line

And then referenc it where they want to format it
such as:

! (:include Profiles.JaneDoe#WhoAmI#WhoAmIEnd:)

this is some more blurb to see what happens if there is more text.\\
or multiline

(:if false:)
[[#WhoAmI]] The only smart Doe (married into the family) test 3\\
with a 2nd line 

Then use a different tact on your includes, use anchors:

(:include {$PageList.Group}.{$PageList.Name}#WhoAmI#WhoAmIEnd:)

I have updated the site to reflect this, look at both profiles,
