I am using WYSIWYG ( tiny_mce) in my site.. i need to give privilege to users to use some html tags like <p> but if they paste unnecessary tags like <span style="font-weight: bold;"> which can not be estimated before hence str_replace() is not sufficient .

i think there can be a way like i select a portion from "<span"  to ... very next ">" and remove this from the content ?

you can use a regular expression to strip out those things like:

$str = preg_replace("/\\<span[^>]+\\>/", '<span>', $str);

Open in new window
