Strip HTML tags again
Hi monks, i am little bit disappointed in all this discussion.
If the input from chat is displayed in HTML page, then any "<" or ">" in the displayed text will be transformed to the < and > . So if you can see <this is a normal text> in your web browser, than in the sources of a HTML page it will be <this is a normal text> in this case you should not be bothered about knowing all tags, and if you want to see the text as it is in browser you need just to replace "<" by "<" and ">" by ">" in your perl code.
