Issue Type: Bug

When a commit message has any html (such as <br />) it won't escape the characters and will instead insert the html into the DOM for vscode. I verified this by looking at the developer tools for vscode.


  1. Create a commit with html such as "Commit with <br /> html break"
  2. Open GitLens Explorer in sidebar
  3. Drop down "History" tree to see that the commit only shows "Commit with " (because the rest is on a new line)
