HTML tags are currently stripped. It would probably be sensible to make an
exception for <sup> and <sub>, maybe also <s>, <u>, and <del>/<ins>, but then
you start getting into issues of people setting weird styles and getting

whitelisted, because those aren't too uncommon and stripping them results in
flat-out wrong output (e.g., 10^22 -> 1022).
