 I'm going to close this as wontfix for now. The reason it's shown in a
 prompt box (giving you an Ok and a Cancel button) is so the user can
 select the text regardless of what browser they're using (some browsers
 won't let you select text in an alert box).

 Maybe we can look at giving this a better UI at some point.
