[CODE] tags are not rendered in Connect


When a user follows a task record, the user gets the updates from the task records in the Connect chat window. If the update has [code] tags they are not rendered correctly in the Connect chat window, instead they are rendered as HTML code.

Steps to Reproduce

Make sure the Connect plugin is activated

  1. Log on to any out of the box instance
  2. Impersonate an ITIL user, for example, "Fred Luddy"
  3. Navigate to task.list and open any of the active task records
  4. "Follow" the task record.
  5. Impersonate another ITIL user, for example, "David Loo"
  6. Navigate to the same task record
  7. Enter a comment/work notes as follows:
    [code]<b>This text will be bold. </b>[/code]
  8. Impersonate back to user "Fred Luddy" and open the Connect Chat window.

HTML code is rendered in the Connect chat window
