<wash-html></wash-html>

This tag is mostly useful for turning user freetext input from a form into HTML intelligently, by turning sections of the text separated by more than one newline into <p>paragraphs</p>, filtering out or explicitly allowing some HTML tags in the input and creating <a>anchor-links</a> out of potential www-addresses.
