Basic Use
In its basic use the productdescription tag will output the full description for the product along with system defined font formatting which can be changed in the design section of your EKM shop.

[ekm:productdescription][/ekm:productdescription]
                                
This would output something like...
iPod dock speaker system 30W Sound Output Integrated SubWoofer Plays docks and charges all iPods Adjustable Treble and Bass Controls Remote Control Line-in connection Mains Operated
Full Use
If used with a font_formatting attribute the description will be output without any of the systems predefined formatting. This strips out all <font> tags.
