From the 12th of November, Icecat will remove the bullet points (/n/n) from the Marketing text (LongDesc) in the XML Icecat productvdata-sheets, to avoid duplicate bullet points. From now on, in the XML output, bullet points will only be available as a separate asset.
See below the old and new XML structures.

Excellent. It will be nice to not have that data duplicated. Good job!
Suggestion: Do the same thing with FeatureLogo(s) and ReasonsToBuy. We're manually filtering out the duplicates now.
Unfortunately, this appears to not be working properly. I'm still finding the bullet point duplicated in the long description. I've replied to the marketing email about this, and also contacted Icecat via the contact form, but haven't gotten a reply yet. I can provide examples if necessary.
Dear David, that is probably related to data-sheets that are not yet republished yet. 50 languages * 8 million datasheets = 400 million pages. Quite some queue.
