in reply to Tag filtering: a standard mechanism?

Hmm... would a templating system do what you are after? Taking an example from the HTML::Template documentation, perhaps you could try something like this:
In the template: <TMPL_LOOP NAME=EMPLOYEE_INFO> Name: <TMPL_VAR NAME=NAME> <P> Job: <TMPL_VAR NAME=JOB> <P> <P> </TMPL_LOOP> In the script: $template->param(EMPLOYEE_INFO => [ { name => 'Sam', job => 'programmer' }, { name => 'Steve', job => 'soda jerk' }, ] ); print $template->output(); The output: Name: Sam <P> Job: programmer <P> <P> Name: Steve <P> Job: soda jerk <P> <P>
Again, that code is from the documentation, I just cut and pasted it.

With that though, you can just create some sort of header and footer, and use HTML::Template's TMPL_INCLUDE directive to pull in more HTML content as necessary.

This is just an example though, and there are plenty of templating systems available in Perl if this doesn't suit your needs. HTH!

    Thanks, but that's not the same thing. A templating system is fine for arranging the output - I'm using TT2 - but it doesn't have anything to do with formatting the contents of individual fields.

    What i want to find or create is a minimal system for excluding all but a specified set of html tags and tag attributes from within a piece of text.
