I would like to customize the Rad Editor to allow only certain HTML tags.
In particular, those tags supported by Adobe Flash player, as mentioned in this web page:

Examples:
As of now, when the user makes a text bold, the HTML code that is produced by the editor has <strong> tag; instead of this tag, the editor should produce, <b> tag in the HTML code, whenever the user clicks the button B in the editor.

Similarly, instead of <em>, the editor should produce <i> in the HTML code, whenever the user clicks the I button.
Instead of <span style="text-decoration: underline;">Underlined Text</span>, it should produce <u>Underlined Text</u>.
In the same way, all the tags mentioned in the above web page - and only those tags - should be supported by the custom Rad Editor.

How do I customize the Editor in this way?

Thanks in advance. I appreciate your help in this.
Regards!

Hi Joe,

One of the main goals of RadEditor is to produce valid XHTML content and for this reason the FixUlBoldItalic filter converts the <b> to <strong> and <u> to <span style="text-decoration: underline;"> tags.

My suggestion is to disable this filter by following the instructions in this KB article: Content Filters.

If you want to convert the <em> tags to <i> tags then you should write a custom content filter. See this KB article for an example of a custom content filter that replaces characters with regular expressions: Converting Unicode symbols to numeric HTML entities using a content filter.

Another approach is to replace the tags on the server. The content returned by the Content property is a string, which you can modify with the String.Replace method.


Sincerely yours,
