The strip_tags() function in PHP will strip tags from a string. You can use one or two parameters with this function. Using only one parameter it will strip all tags found in a string. Using the second parameter will allow you to specify tags that should not get stripped from the input string.

Hello World"; $stripResult1 = strip_tags($myString); echo $stripResult1; // Returns "Hello World" echo " "; $stripResult2 = strip_tags($myString, ""); echo $stripResult2; // Returns "Hello World" ?>
