We need someone to create an XSL transform that strips HTML tags from web content. The tags to be stripped are added to the transform dynamically from a PHP environment. In other words, we need a transform that can be configured from a PHP application.

The transform should cater to 2 cases:
1. The tag is stripped, leaving its content or child nodes
2. The tag is left but its attributes are removed.

A template based approach is preferred. The solution must work under XSL 1.x
One approach found in different variations on the internet is this one:
We prefer NOT to use such an approach that scans the text for "<" characters but rather one that traverses the DOM and filters out certain tags that match certain criteria. The tags passed to the transform would have the form e.g.

<xsl:param name="stripTag"/>

where $stripTag is a string e.g. 'table | td | tr...'

Skills: dom
