This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.


The question text is sanitized. Only a (very) small subset of HTML is tolerated.

<script> tags are not included in the whitelist. Only a very specific set of attributes are allowed, and only on <img> and <a> tags. Use attributes anywhere else and the tag is stripped completely.
