There is a proper form elemente for adding markup, which is '#type' =>
'markup' . You place HTML inside the '#value'. Nothing wrong with this
approach. #prefix and #suffix should be used to wrap elements with
additional markup or add HTML that is related to an existing element.

But that's not even the issue here, right?
