Description Brian Jason Drake 2005-03-09 10:17:44 UTC
Only certain HTML elements and attributes are allowed by 
default. This limits the usefulness of the software and 
costs processor time and memory.
Comment 1 Brion Vibber 2005-03-09 10:19:15 UTC
Not doing HTML validation is a humongous security risk and will never, ever, ever, ever be acceptable.

Additionally, HTML isn't the point. Focus on content is the point, and limited HTML is very deliberate.
