Blurry content in a Canvas card when a YAML block is invalid

This is probably pretty obscure/specific, but I figure it’s worth mentioning in case it has broader implications for Canvas.

Summary: The content of a note shown as a card in Canvas turns blurry when showing an invalid YAML block.

Steps to reproduce

  1. Create a note with a YAML block that has an invalid element.
  2. Add that note as a card to a canvas.
  3. Click outside of that note’s card to set it to viewing mode instead of editing mode.

Expected result

Content, including invalid YAML section, is rendered clearly.

Actual result

Content, including invalid YAML section, appears blurry.

Perhaps worth noting that this does NOT appear to be the case in the iOS app on my iPad.
