  • in a website selector, with 10 websites or so,
  • enter in the search field an (or any substring of `...........
  • notice that the autocompleter will highlight in purple some text but it actually displays html code of the element, as can be seen in this screenshot:


Expected behavior would be that the html code is not displayed (and that the highlighter / search does not match on the html text but only on the text without markup)

Ah I reported that here: https://github.com/piwik/piwik/pull/7552#issuecomment-86812956 but apparently I forgot to fix it ;)

What do you say I just remove the color highlighting? I remember looking into it and it was a mess because of escaping issues.

color highlighting is actually useful: it shows user why the website name matches the search (which sometimes is not obvious when website names are long or when search string is short).
