Using an HTML to Text Converter in Cross-browser Testing
An HTML to text converter can be useful if you're doing cross-browser testing. For example, if you're writing tests for a part of a web application that makes sure that users can't post HTML comments to your application, then with this program you can quickly create tests cases for this scenario. This program will remove all HTML tags from the user's input and leave just the textual data (text nodes and anchor text). Another use case of this utility is to strip HTML tags and extract strings from HTML. After stripping the HTML tags from the data, you're left with just the strings that go between the HTML tags but the tags themselves are gone.
