CPAN showed me these modules

HTML::StripScripts
HTML::StripScripts::Parser
HTML::StripScripts::Regex
HTML::Scrubber
HTML::Scrubber::StripScripts

HTML:etoxifier
HTML::TagFilter
HTML::Sanitizer

They all have widely varying dependancies-- none of which i'm already
using in my app-- so they'll each consume more ram than I'd like.

None of them have really been touched in a while. Not sure if
thats's because they're stable, or that interest has petered out.

If anyone can share pros/cons of any that you've worked with, i'd be
more than happy
