Can't change events description to textile editor

I'm trying to change the descriptiopn field in events to textile. I've taken the default events.html template and changed to below but it isn't using textile. Is there something obvious wrong?

<div class="vevent">
    <h2 class="summary"><perch:events id="eventTitle" /></h2>

    <p class="dtstart"><span class="value-title" title="<perch:events id="eventDateTime" format="c" />"><perch:events id="eventDateTime" format="%c" /></span></p>

    <div class="description"><perch:events id="eventDescHTML" type="textarea" textile="true" editor="markitup" size="m" encode="false" /></div>

    <p class="category"><perch:events id="category_names" encode="false" /></p>

    <perch:if exists="image">
        <img src="<perch:events id="image" type="image" label="Image" width="640" crop="true" />" alt="<perch:events id="eventTitle" />" />

Some of those very old apps have fixed fields that you can't change through the template.

OK, well that explains that. Many thanks.
