However, to prevent these problems, HTML Purifier is here to parse your HTML from malicious content such as xss. Attackers can place series of xss within HTML. What HTML Purifier really does is that it tokenises the whole HTML content and defeats xss by removing all non-whitelisted elements. Morever, it cleans the HTML through ensuring that HTML contents are well-formed by validating all attributes according to their RFCS. Thus, aftet using HTML Purifier, your document is both safe from malicious code and also W3C compliant. In case , you are using some frameworks, then you are lucky enough because HTML Purifier Plugins are available for some major frameworks such as Drupal, WordPress, Joomla, Symphony and others.
