Ideas

The PHP Filters are made public so that you can extend them and give back improvements to the community. The original authors would rank these as the highest priority suggestions, other suggestions are also below. If you make changes, please be sure to share your improvements and mail owasp@owasp.org with the code and all details of improvements. The license requires this but your karma far outweighs that anyway !
