in reply to Best Module for Cross-Site Scripting ?

The one time I actually needed to accept (and filter) HTML I used HTML::Scrubber and found it to be nice. However, all other times I simply use encode_entities($input, '<>&"'); from HTML::Entities (or an equivalent speedier sub).

Good Day,

    I have also had very good experience with HTML::Scrubber. I use it entirely in "whitelist mode", so only the tags I want come through, and for those tags, only the attributes I want on them come through.

    One small drawback is that it does not check for the HTML being well-formed, e.g. if you send it HTML snippets with missing closing tags, those will come through as-is.
