I created a Flow, described in Using Flow for SharePoint News Email Notifications, that notifies recipients via email about News posts on a SharePoint site. Works well, except that the Description property delivers a plain text version of the posting's lede.  What I very much want is an HTML version of same, exactly as it appears in the page.

 

There's some similarity to Inspecting SharePoint News Metadata in Flow.  I don't think switching from "When a file is created..." to "When an item is created..." will make a difference as I have access to a large set of properties, but I don't mind being wrong if the item trigger will get me what I want.
