Setting escapeHTML on the hits widget makes highlightedTagName in highlight widget useless

Here’s a simple example based on the default sandbox. The only changes I made were setting escapeHTML on the hits widget and setting highlightedTagName to mark. When running a search such as “air”, you can see that all of the highlights are wrapped in em tags instead of mark tags as expected.

Any insight?

Just bumping this to see if someone could help me by pointing out what I’m doing wrong or acknowledging that this is a bug.
