HTMLTag 1.1 Plugin broken since NPP 7.7

Hi, I noticed a pretty bad regression when using the HTMLTag plugin. To reproduce, have the following text in a blank document:
Then go to to Plugins > HTML Tag > Decode JS
If using version 7.6.6 (last good) it’ll correctly decode to “Hello!”
If using version 7.7 and above, it will hang, and RAM usage will increase exponentially (gigabytes in a second) until NPP crashes (or the computer crashes).
If this is something you can fix on your side, please fix it! I use NPP daily and I’ll have to use an earlier version until this is fixed.
Also reported the bug to the developer: https://fossil.2of4.net/npp_htmltag/tktview/c3c733e21f7af25e4e7da3c0eaef4d43809608f7

Npp 7.7, and later versions, updated its internal scintilla control to version 4.2.0.
With this update the notification structure got changed as well and has a pretty strong
significance for all 64bit plugins as the size changed.
So it is most likely, that a plugin, which is using scintilla notification structure,
but hasn’t been update to the new structure, is behaving erroneously.
Maybe true for HTML Tag as well.
