        Building an solid HTML parser would be a mountain of work, and would probably still suffer ongoing problems of false positives and false negatives filling up Roller's JIRA. If this is a ongoing problem with newbie bloggers, probably best to limit them to the rich text editors (we package Xinha) instead of allowing them to blog in pure HTML – the blog server admin page allows you to specify available editors.
