How can I take measures against XSS in the column header?

First of all, let me tell you that I can't speak English well.
I'm sorry if it's a strange sentence.

I succeeded in escaping the fields other than the column header by the following method, but I would like to take XSS countermeasures for the column header values as well.
Is there a way?
Thank you.

const body = data.slice(1);
$('#datatable').dataTable({
    data: body,
    columnDefs: (function () {
        let columns = [{ targets: '_all', render: $.fn.dataTable.render.text() }];
        data[0].forEach((v, i) => {
            columns.push({ targets: i, title: v });
        });
        return columns;
    })()
});

I found a related comment, so I'll keep it linked.

Please note that you can enter HTML markup in the title field and it will be interpreted. I used this feature to include a <div> with a class value in order to enable custom CSS.

    You could use:

    $.fn.dataTable.render.text().display(v)
    

    It is a good point though. Perhaps we should look at some way of having a text renderer for the header.

    Thanks for flagging that up.

    { targets: i, title: $.fn.dataTable.render.text().display(v) }
    Thanks very much to you, I was able to solve it.
