I noticed over the weekend that the `` tag in an ox-html document is
populated with HTML when inline formatting like bold or italics is used.
I'm running org 9.4.4 but even on HEAD
behavior seems to be the same where `(org-export-data title …)` is used to
populate the title rather than something that would render the title
My understanding from MDN
`title` tags should never contain markup.
Is this something we'd take a patch for? My thought is that the title
should be converted using the text backend by default, perhaps with a
configuration variable that would let you specify a different one (for
instance markdown) but I wouldn't go that far at first. Of course at
minimum since org is textual it could just use the title without exporting
at all but I think that doesn't go far enough. The other possibility would
be to somehow strip all special characters from the title but I think that
goes much too far.
Thanks in advance!
