Description of problem:
The Catalog Item Long Description field in the admin UI accepts raw HTML, but unlike the Self-Service UI, the HTML is not sanitized. This allows the user to use <style> tags that are honored in the rest of the UI. 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Add a Long Description with a style tag that applies to an existing element. Something like: span {text-shadow: -5px 0 HotPink, 0 5px HotPink, 5px 0 HotPink, 0 -1px HotPink;} does the trick nicely.
2. Save the catalog item and look at the UI

Actual results:
Results range from concerning to mildly entertaining, depending on your perspective. Screenshots attached.

Expected results:
Like the SSUI, the admin UI should sanitize the HTML code to ensure that core elements are not impacted by the Long Description.

Additional info:
Screenshots attached.

Work around exists we believe, use </br> tags, thus reducing severity

    ServiceTemplate.long_description - always display html-sanitized
    prevents `<script>` and `<style>` elements in the description from breaking the UI in random ways
