[bioontology-support] [BioPortal] ... chomped of descriptions

OK, Matthew has noted that the system doing the parsing is probably
(incorrectly) expecting quotes around the definition and trying to remove
them. I will pass this off to the team responsible for OBO parsing.

OK, this is about as weird as I have seen. Matthew has volunteered to look
into it for us. He may have questions for you as he make progress.

Hi there,

Maybe I've raised this issue before, but it seems all descriptions of my
submitted ontology have been chomped off: they are missing start and end
letter. Maybe I'm doing something wrongly when formatting the ontology
before submitting? Any pointers would be welcome :)

I've been using the Protégé 4.2.0 (build 280) for editing.
