Default PHP & Strip tags

Posted - 10/20/2003 : 4:08:23 PM

Hi All,
I want to create a user friendly back end in which a person can update her personal information without knowledge about html tags.

If i used strip_tags function to strip all html tags, so that the form looks very clean. The trouble is that when a user edit her information and hit update button, all the html format will be gone.

So what do i do to reserve all html tags? And if she wants to type in xxx with a url, then how do i know to convert it to a link. For example: yahoo, http://www.yahoo.com.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated
