The flip side of this is that users can enter HTML tags into the descriptions -- you can note that on your add/modify form.

If you manually validate each entry, then it's not much of a problem.

We don't serve off-site banners for a lot of reasons -- meaning we screen out <IMG> tags. Up front I say it's speed -- and that's 90% true. The other is that the adult sites buy up domains that go dead and change all the links. We have a family site, and I'm not up to taking the chance that the postcards site suddenly starts serving up adult banners --- I can't do much about the URL itself, but that is not _on_ my site, if you see the difference.

It's something to consider in allowing HTML -- that people can insert -- and change -- banners or images that are being linked to.

I've successfully used pretty complex formatting -- including nested <HTML></HTML> tags without a problem in MSIE and the current Netscape.

I use <P><BR><B><A><UL><LI> and other tags in almost every description.
