Message Custom Field (for edit) default value is reformatted after saving

I have a Message Custom Field (for edit) custom field to display a message on some screens. After setting the default value of this the content is reformatted and escaped making editing a pain. For example, if it set the value to be:

(i){color:red} my message {color}

After saving and going back in to edit it has been changed to:

<div class="panel" style="border-width: 1px;"><div class="panelContent">
<p><img class="emoticon" src="/images/icons/emoticons/information.gif" height="16" width="16" align="absmiddle" alt="" border="0"/><font color="red"> my message</font>

I should add this is on an OnDemand instance

Are you editing the HTML when you modify it? I found I needed to reinput raw wiki markup again as it converts that to HTML after submission but does not then convert back when you want to edit. Bit of a pain!
