As to posting plain text, I've never encountered difficulty including some... as in the case of the first (untagged) para in this node, nor in the case of a single sentence of narrative reply. (alternating paras with and without tags maintains readable rendering)
Re the quality needed -- As my update, above, illustrates, coding a set of simple tests for the most egregious failures can be done even by he who frequently wears a dunce cap and without writing anything like a complete parser. If one wished to be more rigorous -- to correct ALL flaws -- then one of the html parsers should make an easy starting point.
