This module provides a field display formatter to render field values as HTML or comma-separated lists. This can currently be used on all core field types (text, long text, number, list, and taxonomy reference etc..) and some contributed fields. (see below).

For multi-value fields, each field value becomes a list item. For long text fields, each line becomes a list item.

Drupal 7 Version

The Drupal 7 version has been refactored to include hooks to implement any field types. There is now a textformatter_contrib module to contain these additional implementations. Currently entityreference, link, node reference and user reference fields are included.
