I have tried to fix this, and it is driving me a bit crazy. The problem is we are using a Gtk.Label to render the message, which supports pango markup. I've tried various combinations of sanitizing and escaping data before putting it into the Gtk.Label and have had varied success. Does anyone have a good solution for this? Without making the tiles webkit :)
