If a user enters the Textile-based code for an image, say: !>graphic.png! the textile() method will successfully render a right-float image. Now, if I want to escape the user's text using h(), the '>' is turned into an &. Obviously, the image then fails to render in a browser. Is there a work around for this? I guess what I'm really asking is: is there a way to allow the user to have limited ability to embed HTML in a view, and can Textile still be used as a friendly way to encode the HTML? -Lindsay

i believe redcloth will sanitize for you (if i recall correctly) so you don't need h(). You may have to pass a flag, but the source should make it clear. pt. pt.

can you do this? mytext = "<%= @user.find(3)" #someone's string trying to hack you. mytext = h("mytext") #not sure if thats how you call it in controller or if you can mytext = Redcloth.new mytext mytext = mytext.to_html
