Type Description

A string value that is the resulting validated HTML code.


Use the CorrectHtml method to process any required HTML code to make it valid, safe and compliant with the specified document type (via the HtmlEditorHtmlEditingSettings.AllowedDocumentType property): XHTML 1.0 Transitional, HTML5, or both. The resulting HTML code is always kept safe, since the method removes all potentially harmful code - unknown tags and attributes, script elements, client-side event handlers and URLs with script content. Automatic validation also helps to maintain the HTML code validity by correcting invalid tag hierarchies and changing invalid attribute values.
