HTML Generator Site

    I just started a site at http://ezweb.exaro.org for newbie html addicts, that need a site real quick. I'm using a form to provide choices for text, alignment, and colors of a webpage, and it will spit out some html to paste into a document. Right now it's only in it's early stages (no colors, and one template)
    SEMrush
    But what I really needed was to know if anyone knew how to prevent people putting html tags into the form. Something that limits them only to <a>, <b>, <i>, and <br>, and anything else, will just print as an html tag on their page.

    my approach:

    - replace all <XXX> with &lt;XXX&gt; [str_replace or any regular expression]
    - replace back to things you want to supprt :
    ( &lt;BR&gt; ==> <br /> etc)

    quick and dirty - but doable in a few minutes :)

    I know what I need to do, I just don't have any ideas for the actual code for it.
