While I was looking through the popular tag page I noticed some inconsistent behaviour of the descriptive text below the tag.

For example:

The tag looks like this:
enter image description here

This matches the text shown on mouse-over:
enter image description here

However, the tag looks like this:
enter image description here

It misses the first few words, which do show on mouse-over:

I find this annoying as my plan was to look through popular tags and see if I can improve the tag-wikis. However, this inconsistent showing of the description slows down the process a bit as I sometimes have to mouse-over and wait for the animation.

I'm on OSX 10.8.5 and use Firefox v28.0.

Note: the tags mentioned are just chosen as an example. I was not planning on editing those wikis.

This is . Here is the relevant Meta Stack Exchange post: New tags page mangles tag wiki excerpts (and a bunch of related discussions listed in the Linked section).

As explained, it's meant to reduce redundancy so that the tag excerpt is as concise as possible.
