  • What are you trying to cleanse? This is a super complicated issue that can require several regular expressions. You're likely better off handling this differently. – drakored Dec 30 '14 at 15:06

  • Specific tags or all tags? – drakored Dec 31 '14 at 4:13
  • All HTML Tags. <.*?> using this regex I am able to hide HTML tags, but if Content in field has greater than(<) character , this character is also getting escaped. – Priya Dec 31 '14 at 4:21
