Safari 2.0.4 display of raise is incorrect

Using Mac G4 Quicksilver 867mhz Mac OS X 10.4.8 Ruby 1.8.5 and Rails
1.2.2

I'm new to RoR so I cannot quite understand why Safari displays a
raise action this way

RuntimeError

    in Admin contactsController#set_contact_postcode

{"action"=>"set_contact_postcode",
"id"=>"2", "value"=>"M1B
5Y7", "controller"=>"admin_contacts"}

Why will it not display " as " or > as > ??
