This is really the best we can do with the current situation. There is  
no mechanism in place for flagging a NEW item as needing to be changed  
and synched back to the device and adding one would be more work than  
it's worth. Ideally, the protocol should have an error status code for  
an unsupported text format, and a limit on the length of the  
description field (as it does for some other fields in other  
collections), but it does not.

The client should have a switch to disable HTML content to avoid (at  
least most of) this issue. In Mnemo 5 we should have HTML support for  
notes so this will not be an issue at that time.
