You also might want to consider for cleaning up your HTML.

While not a perl solution, it does bring some sanity to HTML tag soup.

    Well it's not the same usage. I use HTML Tidy all the time for static HTML code, but HTML::Sanitizer looked like a really great solution to "purify" input.

    Another option for tidying the HTML before sanitising it is XML::LibXML. It has a parse_html method that gracefully copes with mismatched tag nesting, broken quoting and other common offences. You can then use the toStringHTML method to produce nice clean HTML.
