Don't do that unless it's a cached entry in the DB. Unless you
absolutely know you'll never need the raw text again, you should always
store the raw text so it can be processed in the future in any way you
see fit. If you want to speed up the process of conversion, use an
additional field in the database, or a cache, that contains the
processed content.
