Arrow Bug? "Insert metadata as page at start of book" doesnt encode Comments field properly

I recently started using the "Insert metadata as page at start of book" option but it seems to add new lines as '<br/>' in text. so instead of a new line there is the literal text <br/>

I see this when converting from ZIP to MOBI for Kindle. haven't tried other formats/devices.

Also, It would be great if the Comments field could become a rich text editor and accept and keep pasted html content. It would be very useful to be able to add html (images, b, i, u, font, color, background etc) and have that exported properly with "Insert metadata as page at start of book" option.

I would love to past bits from wikis and author's sites and have the <a> links maintained so that I can navigate to them from the kindle.

Kovid talks about it here from post 448 to 451.

This feature would be nice, maybe Kovid could let us know if this is in the cards for future updates. You could always add it as an enhancement request and see what comes of it.
