in reply to Strip HTML tags again

Have a look at HTML::Tagset it contains various lists of valid HTML tags for different sections of a document.

Update: ++ to Ovid for providing the working example below.

    Thanks!!! It is the stuff I was looking for. Now I'd like to know how to use it in a 'perl' manner. Currently I have the following code (right from perlfaq):
    sub strip_html { my $t = shift; $t =~ s/<(?:[^>'"]*|(['"]).*?\1)*>//gs; return $t; }
    Seems like I have to use %HTML::Tagset::isKnown hash, but how to apply it to my sub? I can't find any quick way...
