I want to take out the HTML that is inputted into a form...
unless it is a simple HTML tag like: <b><i><u><img><a href...

The form submits the info to the database.
Then it will be retrieved again for editting in forms...
And also be displayed on a webpage.

I was looking at all the infor at
but it's a little overwhelming.

The closest one I found was the comment dated October 15 2003.

But I couldn't tell if it was what I really needed.

Could someone give me as simple of a script that I could input that would do the job?
A function would be ok too. Maybe better...
