Another definition might be “A method for adding bureaucracy to content generation.”

How about, “An automated method of stripping escaped entities (e.g., accented characters and selected punctuation) from marked-up text”?

Ooh, I like both of those.
One thing about our new CMS is that is strips tag *attributes* but not the tags themselves. So you could have, say <p style=”color:gray;”> and it would come out as just plain <p>. Nice eh?

Excellent! See, that saves you a lot of tedious coding work.
Why is it so hard to build a CMS that’s at least as good as, say, Blogger circa 2002? Shouldn’t these wheels have been rounded off by now?
