Check for cross site scripting (XSS) vulnerabilities

User-entered text with embedded script tags alert(document.cookie); will be encoded.

Some other exploits:
[=expression(alert(document.cookie));]Size tag[/]
[=expression(alert(document.cookie));]Font tag[/]
[float=expression(alert(document.cookie));]Float tag[/float]
[url=javascript:alert(document.cookie)]Click here to see cookie[/url]

Some broken tags

We need to ensure that bad formating will not disrupt your site's HTML.

Broken [b]bold text...

  • A broken list...
    A broken quote...

how do you do the quotes where, when you're posting articles, it doesn't say "Quote:", but you still get the indent and the little bar to the left?

< blockquote> text here < /blockquote>

- without the spaces. Also you need to set the input type to normal - some HTML allowed
