I'm sure Heinz knows this, but it hasn't been stated:

This merely takes the tagged text and sends it out. Contrary to  
claims, it does not do any "converting" at all!

DO NOT do this on a site that does not have careful access control! A  
bad boy (or girl) can use your site to refer to viruses and all  
manner of other malware stuff.

If you do not allow anonymous postings, and you do not allow end-user  
account creation, and you trust all the users you create accounts  
for, it can still cause trouble inadvertently.

On the other hand, you can use it to embed QuickTime movies and a lot  
of neat stuff, as well.

Use with care!
