#7027: Angle brackets of links in profile fields are escaped

Component:  API           |    Version:
 Severity:  normal        |   Keywords:
 Email addresses, profile images and websites no longer display as links
 due to the escaping of < and > (left and right angle brackets).

 For example, the email line on the page:

 now reads as HTML code instead of as a clickable link. This is due to the
 left angle brackets, <, being replaced by & l t ; (spaces added) and the
 right angle bracket, >, being replaced by & g t ; (spaces added). This
 effectively breaks all profile images, email addresses and web URLs.

 line 671.

 So, what should be HTML code is displayed as simple text.
