Get Yer Code Off: Tool to Strip HTML
The problem with running lots of email discussion lists is that from time-to-time, all the clever filtering goes haywire and you end up with a page of HTML code, when you should have a nice readable paragraph of text.
For any coders removing the HTML tags and ending up with a plain text version is trivial. If you’re not a command line wizard, then there’s a bunch of tools you can download and install to do this job, but what if you want a simple web-based tool to strip HTML tags for you?
I went hunting for one, but couldn’t find anything useful, so decided to write one. And so I figured, why not add it to the website in case anyone else is after a trivially simple, but hopefully useful tool to get plain text from HTML.
