I would like to add some custom HTML markup to my terms in my metadata based navigation menus.

So instead of


I would like


(or some other HTML, for example to use font-awesome icons)

When I just "customize" the link text, however, it doesn't render the HTML markup, but rather "escapes" it and displays it as code.

How to prevent this?

That is not possible out of the box, so you have to make your own navigation or inject javascript to change encode the existing navigation.

This is just a jquery example and has no direct link to your navigation:

$(".navigation").each(function() { $(this).html($(this).text()) }

Something like that.
