Subject Re: REPOST: HTML Tags from a database field

Whew!  Sounds like a lot of work for what I thought would be a
simple config issue.   Any chance you could make the stylesheets
available - maybe upload them to the wiki?

I use the HTMLTransformer for that purpose, with a couple of XSLT  
stylesheets before and after it.

The first one writes <unescape> tags around each piece of escaped  
HTML.  Then the HTMLTransformer is instructed to only transform text  
nodes inside those tags (by passing it a <parameter name="tags"  
value="unescape"/>.)  Finally a second piece of XSLT gets rid of the  
<unescape> tags along with the fake <body> and <html> inserted by the  
transformer, and does a bit of magic with &amp; and &lt; characters.
