Hi all

I have a text field that users can enter any information into (it is
supposed to be a description field)

For obvious reasons, I want to strip unfriendly HTML/PHP tags. This I am
doing using:

strip_tags($_POST['Duplicate'], '<B> <I> <P> <A> <LI> <OL> <UL> <EM>

OK, so this is cool. I got this list from the Slashdot allowed tags
list, which I would assume is ok. Now I get someone sending me
information such as:
"In fact the value of the destination is < the source."

Strip_tags removes all info after the < sign. Obviously I would like to
convert it to a &gt; entity, but how can I do both of these?

Thanks for any advice.
