Text changing on events

All the text (font and color) on past events changed as soon as someone entered that particular building. At the very least, I assume this is some kind of glitch?

Looks like a player named the building colorfully and mis-typed the closing tag of one of the grays (not the last one; that's darker), so everything after it is still waiting to be told not to show as grey anymore. Feels unfair to consider that the game's fault; I don't think it was expecting players to use html in building names. Certainly not expecting to have to clean up player's code.
Same or similar for font.

Hit the signwriting character limit and part of the <font> tag was truncated when the project finished.

That would make sense. Is there a way to fix it, or do I just have to get used to seeing this whenever the building is interacted with?

The sign just needs to be changed again, which looks like is already happening.
