Free format text.

The description field is not really of that type, it's a type of its own, but it is close to free-format text.

What you need to do after you add the free-format text field is change the "renderer" from plain text to markup. That will get you the markup behaviour and the preview.

i changed renderer (in field configuration) to Wiki Style Renderer and it works :), thx

and field type i used Free Text Field (unlimited text)
