{{ old_values:biography|striptags }} Misfires?

I'm trying to allow members to update their bios, which is everything after the second "---" in their .yaml file.

If I just put {{ old_values:biography}} between my <textarea ...></textarea> tags, I get opening and closing <p> tags, and other HTML like <em> etc.

OK, but every variant I try of {{ old_values:biography|striptags }} does nothing.

What I really want to show the user is the original markdown view, with asterisks for italics, etc.

How to?
