What Happens with the Excerpt When You Compose a New Post with WP 2.7+?

If you compose a new post in WordPress 2.7 or higher, it looks as though the excerpt field may be auto-populated in a way that it was not in previous versions. I only mention this because I’ve noticed some janky <meta name="description" /> behavior over the last couple of weeks, and I’ve got to solve this problem to ensure that I’m not screwing with people’s <head>s, ya dig?

What if I want to go to VPS.net?

This is my primary Modular Content.

What if I have a second paragraph and test’n apostrophes?

  • Does this work
  • With list markup
  • Or will this throw it off?

And how about a final paragraph?
