A few times I see template variables (like in the pagecomments) as
$Variable.XML

Now, I'm guessing this will output a xml clean string or something, could someone point me to the url in the docu where I can read upon this?

I can't seem to find it.

well I think it should be on this page - http://doc.silverstripe.com/doku.php?id=text but its probably out of date as its not. But I think from your guess its pretty spot on.

Ok,

now another question in the same line:

I'm subclassing the comment stuff but I want to allow users to use some html-tags such as <a>, <img>, ...

Is there some SS-built in method I could use, some 'bulletproof' strip_tags() thing, that gets rid of everything except the allowed tags, or should I just use strip_tags?
