      Description

      CalEventLocalServiceImpl.toICalVEvent() simply adds the description to the resulting iCal4j VEvent by calling new Description(event.getDescription()).

      This leads to HTML markup embedded in the calendar export since the implementation of LPS-7966.

      HTML markup needs to be removed from the description suring export or replaced with newlines/tabs in some cases.

      The following code snippet could be an indication on what could be possibly done:

      String descriptionStr = event.getDescription();
      		
      descriptionStr = StringUtil.trim(description);
      descriptionStr = description.replaceAll("\r|\n|\t", StringPool.BLANK);
      descriptionStr = description.replaceAll("(?i) ", StringPool.SPACE);
      descriptionStr = description.replaceAll("(?i)<li>", "\n* ");
      descriptionStr = description.replaceAll("(?i)<dd>", "\n\t");
      descriptionStr = description.replaceAll("(?i)<td>", "\t");
      descriptionStr = description.replaceAll("(?i)<a.+href=\"(.+)\"(?:/>|>.*</a>)", "$1");
      descriptionStr = description.replaceAll("(?i)</?(?:br|p|div|h.|dt|tr)/?>(?!$)", StringPool.NEW_LINE);
      descriptionStr = HtmlUtil.unescape(description);
      descriptionStr = HtmlUtil.stripHtml(description);
      descriptionStr = description.replaceAll("(?:\\n\\s*)+", StringPool.NEW_LINE);
      
      Description description = new Description(descriptionStr);
      

      In addition the HTML version of the description could be added in the X-ALT-DESC property to allow calendars like Outlook to still show the full HTML.

      final XProperty altDesc = new XProperty("X-ALT-DESC", event.getDescription());
      altDesc.getParameters().add(new XParameter("FMTTYPE", "text/html"));
      eventProps.add(altDesc);
      

      We have performed a short test in Outlook 2007 with this snippet.
