Recently I have been tasked with modifying my custom module to output "clean html", given the following html snippet:
<B>TEXT</B><BR>Foo & BAR

<code> tags not
<pre> tags. In fact, <pre>
tags should generally be avoided. If they must

taken to ensure that their contents do not
have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent
horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor
