Description : whitelist-based HTML-sanitizing library

Bleach is an HTML sanitizing library that escapes or strips markup and
attributes based on a white list. Bleach can also linkify text safely,
applying filters that Django's urlize filter cannot, and optionally setting
rel attributes, even on links already in the text.
Bleach is intended for sanitizing text from untrusted sources. If you find
yourself jumping through hoops to allow your site administrators to do lots of
things, you're probably outside the use cases. Either trust those users, or
Because it relies on html5lib, Bleach is as good as modern browsers at dealing
with weird, quirky HTML fragments. And any of Bleach's methods will fix
unbalanced or mis-nested tags.
