 I have the same issue with contacts that use pidgin and adium clients.

 Documentation says that encrypted message may contain HTML markup
 "The plaintext message (either before encryption, or after decryption)
 consists of a human-readable message (encoded in UTF-8, optionally with
 HTML markup)"

 pidgin-otr is something like a reference implementation of OTR. At least
 it is available from the official OTR site.

 Corresponding adium bug:
 "Adium's behavior here is correct: OTR messages have to be encoded with
 UTF-8 and may contain HTML markup. If other clients show these tags
 literally, then those clients need to be fixed."
