Strip formatting from Lookup Field

I have a series of lookup fields that initially populate data in a portal but can thereafter be manipulated by a user. The users have been copying and pasting data into the lookup fields with formatting imbedded. Were this not a lookup field, I could use use the field calculation to strip the formatting but since you can't have a lookup field that also has a calculation, I need a different strategy here.


Any thoughts?




PS: A feature to allow forced field text formatting and/or forced layout text formatting would be nice for FM16.
