I have a form where an admin can change a part of the content on a page. The form lets
someone do it without having to update the files on the server in a more traditional
manner; BUT, it must be correct XHTML. If the admin types a <p> or a stray '<' for that
matter, it will render the resulting page not well-formed.
Combine that with the feature of serving XHTML to browsers that accept it, and the site
breaks on browsers other than IE.
What's a good way to validate something programmatically before committing it? Better
yet, is there a rich editor or wiki- or phpbbs-like translator that I might use for
soliciting the input that I might use instead?
The current content has a couple paragraphs and a bulleted list. So it's not just a
simple blank, but must allow an amount of rich content.
