This functions deletes from input html tags like:  
  
- <script>  
- <object>  
- <iframe>  
- <applet>  
- <meta>  
- <style>  
- <form>  
- <img>  
- <onmouseover>  
- <body>  
  
etc.  
  
Ok. But if we sent to script:  
  
# <iframe src=http://securityreason? < Hi  
  
The function don't find wrong tags.  
And broswer read this   
  
"<iframe src=http://securityreason? < Hi"  
  
and change "<" to ">".  
Result:  
  
# <iframe src=http://securityreason? > Hi  
  
I have checked this in IE, Mozilla, Opera, Links, Lynx etc.  
Only don't work in konqueror.
