Remove Colon after "Course Summary:" in Syllabus

We work hard to make our Canvas courses look great. We use images, paragraph spacing, and uniquely styled headers to give our course a modern, clean, inviting atmosphere.

However, on the Syllabus page, the "Course Summary:" heading includes a colon that cannot be removed. Headings do not require colons. Yes, this heading is before a list, but it is still a heading. We should be able to have a consistent look on this page (and the rest of our course) without having to add colons after every heading.

"cannot" is such as strong word Smiley Happy

This can be removed with custom JavaScript uploaded to the account through the theme editor.

(function() {
  const el = document.querySelector('body.syllabus #content > h2');
  if (el && el.textContent === 'Course Summary:') {
    el.textContent = 'Course Summary';
  }
})();

That approach doesn't really consider locales, though, and it may not work with the mobile apps.
