All metadata fields should be plain text

    Making a rare case for removing some capabilities in ArcCatalog:  having rich text such as bold, underline, etc. within the metadata is unnecessary and a needless complexity; just something else that can go wrong or need developers' time without there being an adequate payoff.  Also, it seems arbitrary that some fields are rich text and others are only plain.

    If eye-catching formatting is important to the user, they can embed Word documents and the like within the geodatabase.
