OK... so here's the deal. I have tried multiple Google and forum searches to no avail. Maybe it's they way I'm searching but this is a last resort.
Example... the user types or pastes the following into the input <textarea>:
Then either automatically or clicking a button, it converts to the following in a new text box:
I don't know how to say it any other way. Input text with HTML tags ... Output to plain text formatting like a URL.
I know how to create the input and output textareas and how to create a clickable button. I just cant figure out the stripping HTML tags and outputting plain text part.
Thanks in advance to any takers.
