Bridgy Publish to GitHub should preserve markup in plaintext as such #810
When using Bridgy Publish to POSSE a comment (or issue) to GitHub, it should preserve any visible plaintext markup from the source as visible plaintext markup on GitHub.
Note that the preceding paragraph also has visible plaintext markup - "data" tag, escaped in the original: tantek.com/2018/107/b1 thus it should also be escaped and displayed in the copy of this issue on GitHub.
HTML2text should (maybe?) handle this, or if not, Bridgy Publish could escape any visible '<' (less than), '>' (greater than), and '&' (ampersand) characters from the source before publishing to GitHub.

Update: Now that this is fixed, I edited to escape data tag in this issue description, and also edited microformats/microformats2-parsing#10 (comment) to escape its data element
