Dunno of its helping but we had a simular prob. I wrote a small class that
allows us to check for allowed tags.


          ........ class declarations .........

    $allowedtags = array    (

                    '<br>'      => '[br]',
                    '<p>'       => '[p]',
                    '</p>'      => '[/p]',
                    '<strong>'  => '[strong]',
                    '</strong>' => '[/strong]',
                    '<b>'       => '[b]',
                    ....... etc.......

        while ( list ($key, $val)  = each($allowedtags)) {
            $trans = str_replace ($key, $val, $trans);

        $trans = strip_tags(stripslashes($trans));


        while ( list ($key, $val)  = each($allowedtags)) {
            $trans = str_replace ($val, $key, $trans);

        return $trans;
