* This is our primary input filter.
*
* The high bit hack only involved some old IE browser, forget which (IE5/Mac?)
* that had an XSS attack vector due to stripping the high-bit on an 8-bit character
* after cleansing, and angle chars with the high bit set could get through as markup.
*
* This is now disabled because it was interfering with some legitimate unicode sequences
* and hopefully there aren't a lot of those browsers left.
*
* Use this on any text input where angle chars are not valid or permitted
* They will be replaced with safer brackets. This may be filtered further
* if these are not allowed either.
