Nested Elements Cause the Returned Data to Be Truncated.
Metacat doesn't handle values with nested elements well. Given the following:
If <i>true</i>, then display plot. If <i>false</i>, then don't. (the default)
If I request the value of the "configure" element, I get:
<param name="entity/property/property/configure">, then don't. (the default)</param>
Metacat only gives me the text after the last inner element (the <i> element).

A possible solution is to require Kepler (or whatever the uploading agent is) to use entities to hide the HTML tags. So <i> would be converted to <i> so that metacat will treat them as text, then metacat's XSL can convert them back into tags.
