Problem with Public version View when HTML code was embedded in the Note field

If I pasted the html code in the Note edit box, that it displays correctly everywhere except the "Public version View".
See for example http://gpsloglabs.com/share/711bb9a2a7f6971819ba068699cffbc360662285/
It would be nice to fix this because it's the only way to give access to some photo/video along with the track.

Unfortunately allowing that code to be included poses a security risk, see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cross-site_scripting

It really shouldn't be allowed in the "private" activity pages either, but in those cases the risk is minimal as you can only "attack" yourself.

If you want to combine GPS data with photos etc. you will need to embed the maps and graphs into a blog or other website that will also allow including the photos and videos.
