developing libraries for both client and server applications.
It was created when developing my validation library,
which provides input validation of form data on both client and
server (to achieve the conflicting objectives of speed and security).
Then my Perl application needing the library performs
an on-the-fly conversion, thus maintaining the library in one place only.
SimpleHtml2Text converts Html to plain text,
stripping out all Html elements.
It is a very simple filter, though it does attempt to leave a few
relevant line breaks in the text.
