One more thing.

+                $(listElmt).html('<input type="checkbox" ' +
(g.colVisib[i] ? 'checked="checked" ' : '') + '/>' +
+                           $(currHeader).text());

You use raw text - $(currHeader).text() - as HTML code. If a column is
named "buggy<!--" then it isn't displayed properly in column list. Use
$element.text('here goes any text') to set element's text. In this
version you just lose part of the column, but before this commit the
entire list after such column was broken.

You can use this SQL to create test table:
create table escape_test (`buggy<!--` int, second int);
insert into escape_test values(1,1);
