Text entries on the admin pages are processed through cgi.escape()
which converts "<", ">" and "&" to "<", ">" and "&"
respectively. This is done to prevent a malicious list owner from
including HTML scripts in text which is ultimately rendered on web
pages including the admin pages themselves.

You can use bin/config_list or bin/withlist to replace msg_footer with
the text you want.
