Right now, new lines are removed from the descriptions of the component and input/output ports, making it difficult to separate important text. It is also not intuitively possible to bold and underline text, etc.
Recommend adding rich text capabilities to these fields, so that users can convey information in a more organized fashion.
Note that this could be through a rich text editor widget in the browser and/or using Wiki style tags (which may already exist but is not obvious/intuitive in the interface).

Markdown is supported in descriptions, but you're right in that there isn't anything saying so.
