Problems with Teaser (2.0.5 beta)

Hi

I'm running 2.0.5 beta Starter Edition and I have two problems with the teaser:
- I do need HTML-Code in the Teaser because I must write some chemical signs like  H<SUB>2</SUB>O (H2O, with a lower 2). How can I get that?
Same problem is in the headline, although it doesn't make much sense there (because of page title), I'll better might use extra-Fields for that.
My suggestion: Add Normal-View and HTML-View for all the fields in the Extras-Page of the article editor.

- The option in the link menu 'from the teaser or headline to the main article' doesn't work it just adds [[ ]] around the text to be linked and creates a link on itself.
Workaround: in HTML-View type <A HREF="{$x.link$}">click here to read more</A>

Thank you
Stephan

I have a temporary article that publishes to a hidden folder that I use for this kind of thing.

Edit it in HTML view, switch to normal view in the temp article. Then copy/paste into the article / box you want.

The current CopyBoy 2.0 beta will also let you edit the raw data in the Teaser field.
