How To: Remove HTML Tags

Let’s say you got a pretty neat text, but only a normal text editor and you want to get rid of the HTML tags.
This is possible with this tool in one easy step.

Reformat Text

Or you got a text that is not really formatted. It’s like a tapeworm text, i.e. a long, unformatted text.
Maybe still containing all the punctuation. But no paragraphs. And you’d like to reformat it.
After every recognizable end of a sentence, you’d like to introduce a new line.
That’s possible with one step.

Also if you just like to remove all additional empty lines, or inserting line numbers or removing them.

Beautify HTML / XML and more HTML Related Stuff

Maybe you’d like to beautify an HTML or XML file.
Maybe you’d like to filter all the links from a text file or all the email addresses.

Handling Lists

Or you’d like to write an email to everyone on your list. And you don’t want to write each email individually because you want to create
a mass email for your blog without having to use any other tool.
You can do that.

If you just got this data, for example:
