<TABLE ALIGN="CENTER" BORDER="0" WIDTH=95% CELLSPACING="0" CELLPADDING="3"><TR><TD>(n<FONT FACE="MS Reference Sans Serif"></FONT>)   or <B>wildebeest</B> (wĭl´dəbēst´´)  , large African <A HREF="bword://antelope">antelope</A>, genus <I>Connochaetes.</I> Its heavy head and humped shoulders resemble those of a buffalo, while the compact hindquarters are like those of a horse. The gnu has a beard, a short, erect mane, and a long, flowing tail. Members of both sexes have large horns that curve down, outward, and up. Gnus are grazing animals and live in herds on open grassland. They constantly move in an effort to locate new pastures. The sight of a gnu migration, with its distinctive style of movement, is perhaps the most impressive group event in the animal kingdom. There are two species. The brindled gnu, or blue wildebeest (<I>Connochaetes taurinus</I>), is a large, fierce-looking animal of S and E Africa. It stands 41/2 ft (135 cm) high at the shoulder and weighs about 500 lb (225 kg); its coat is bluish-gray mottled with brown on the sides. The tail, mane, and beard are black. In the northern variety of this species (called the white-bearded gnu), which ranges as far N as Kenya, the beard is white. The brindled gnu lives in herds of 20 to several thousand individuals, often led by one or several old females and often found grazing with herds of zebra. Gnus are swift runners and herds engage in elaborate evasive maneuvers when threatened; their chief predator is the lion. They graze in the morning and evening, resting during the heat of the day; they often travel long distances in search of water. The white-tailed gnu, or black wildebeest (<I>C. gnou</I>), is a somewhat smaller animal once abundant in S Africa. It is now probably extinct in the wild, but is protected in parks and reserves, where its numbers are increasing. <I>Gnu</I> is the San (Bushman) term for these animals; <I>wildebeest</I> is Afrikaans. Gnus are classified in the phylum <A HREF="bword://Chordata">Chordata</A>, subphylum Vertebrata, class Mammalia, order Artiodactyla, family Bovidae.</TD></TR></TABLE>

The two species of gnu are found on the African veld, where they are perhaps the fastest of the animals. The brindled gnu, <i>Connochaetes taurinus</i>, travels in herds of a dozen to several hundred individuals, frequenting the open plains in search of grass and a regular supply of water. Brindled in colour, it has brown stripes on the neck and shoulders, and a black tail; the horns are smooth and spread outwards. A single calf is born after a gestation period of eight and a half months. The white-tailed gnu, <i>C. gnou</i>, once common over much of the South African veld, is now restricted to reserves.

Hi. I've installed sdcv yesterday.

But as you can see in the screenshot and code sample, it even shows the tags. Is there any way to not get the tags?
