Thank you for fixing the issue but I see <span> tags when using auto-complete by issue subject.

Please try this new version, it should work as expected with one mention: the letters that match the search are no longer highlighted.

Also, instead of the sanitzeHTML function, I think it's better to use a library like https://lodash.com/docs/4.17.15#escape, but I'm not sure how to add it without copying the code or by using a module bundler like webpack. @Jean-Philippe, any recommendations on this?

By the way: this a full-blown XSS vulnerability. With an issue subject such as

<span onmouseover="alert('pwned');">This is some exciting text</span>

arbitrary Javascript can be executed (as well as arbitrary HTML code shown). In my opinion, the assessment of the issue in Security_Advisories should therefore be increased to High.

Thanks Holger, I've changed to High.
