Allowing user-contributed raw HTML is a significant security risk and should be
avoided.

* http://www.cert.org/​advisories/CA-2000-0​2.html

I feel that certain HTML should/must be allowed:

* b
* i
* u
* s (strikethrough)
* tt
* p
* br
* hr
* ol
* ul
* li
* h1/h2/...
* a href
* img
* font

and maybe others I should have thought of but didn't. The basics should be
allowed (in the whitelist), and all other tags should be ignored (stored in the
source and not displayed).

I believe that this functionality is definitely necessary. It was a nightmare
for me to have converted hundreds of HTML pages by hand into coWiki syntax.
Being able to cut-and-paste basic pages would be fantastic.

Even though HTML is not known by all of our audience, wiki-code could be a
learning barrier for those that do know it.
