As you might know, Cocoon Forms already supports HTMLArea. The guys at 
Outerthought extended this support in Daisy by an HTMLCleaningConvertor. It 
transforms the HTML that is returned by HTMLArea into valid XHTML. AFAIU this 
cleaning process is very configurable.

This convertor is of course very special for Cocoon Forms but Bruno implemented 
it in a modular way so that the HtmlCleaner 

can be used from other components than from the convertor.

For now, this HTMLCleaningConvertor is only part of Daisy 
( but I plan to integrate  it in 
Cocoon within the next weeks.
