If note title contains "&" symbol, delete verification message breaks

Bug Description

The "Really delete [title of note]?" warning dialog incorrectly shows the Pango markup instead of parsing it and formatting the text as bold when the title of note contains the "&" symbol.
E.g. <span weight ='bold' size='larger'>Really delete "Rhetoric - Allyn & Bacon Presentation"?</span>

How to reproduce:
* Create a new note in Tomboy
* Add the "&" symbol somewhere in the title of the note
* Press the delete button
* Note the incorrect dialog formatting

What should happen:
* The main dialog text is bold and larger, as seen whenever deleting a note without the "&" in the title.

See the attached screenshots for the incorrect and correct formatting.

As an update, though it's low importance, I can confirm the dialog text still breaks on Ubuntu 13.10 with Tomboy 1.15.2.
