What did you do?

I don't know if this is the right place to post the problem (basically if this is a problem with Kuma or the documentation), but I saw it in a number of places so I figured I'd post about it here.

It looks like when trying to format a code snippet of CSS, actually displaying it on the page causes all the HTML to be escaped. Meanwhile in the editor, it formats the selection properly. I think it becomes pretty obvious with an example, so here's one: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/CSS/animation#Syntax

What happened?

What should have happened?

Is there anything else we should know?
Original ticket: https://github.com/mozilla/kuma/issues/2699
This is a limitation of prism.js which gets run on the page but not on in the wiki editor. 

In Bug 1102508 we are trying to find a solution specifically for the syntax boxes, (it would not apply for all code snippets).
