This is related to #5495. Are you just complaining about the fact that formatting is being stripped from Topics, or do you see garbage characters?

As for the hostnames, I color codes don't belong there IMHO. Do you really know of a server that sends you hostnames with color codes?

I see garbage characters (i.e. the control codes for colours) in place of actual coloured text. Rizon and some other IRC networks use them and even though it's not part of the RFC spec it should still be implemented in line with other popular IRC clients.
