Oh, I never look at that. But the problem here is that HsColour is
apparently treating the literate text as if it were HTML. Unless there
is some sort of pragma indicating that that is the case, surely it
should put the literate blocks in a <pre> tag? And perhaps colour them,
or use some sort of border, to distinguish them from the code.
