Unfortunately no one has had the time to update the playground to use 
something like codemirror (http://codemirror.net) yet. This would fix 
the issue (and several others); the bug isn't in JSON-LD, it is in the 
HTML on the playground. If you inspect the HTML elements for the compact 
output you'll see that it is interpreting what is inside the angled 
brackets as an HTML element because the output is not HTML-escaped.
