Retrieve description without style information

Hello there,

we are currently using a wiki-style renderer for our description. In one situation we are reading the description from the issue with the function issue.getDescription(). One problem is that the returned string contains all style tags in the used markup language. Is there a convenient way to extract the raw text of the description of an issue?

I think you should use an additional library like Jsoup or do not use the wiki-style renderer.
