No, but you should look at RubySoup.

I created a helper for my app that strips all html tags and then re-
links anything that is an http or mailto link using the strip_tags
and auto_link functions

def sanitize_text_but_keep_links (text)
@sanitized_text = strip_tags(text)
@sanitized_text = auto_link(@sanitized_text)
return @sanitized_text
end
