    I’d like to see if there is a way to remove all the surplus html apart from the element (and it’s content) that comes with a typical optin form embed code (Mailchimp, Aweber, ect)

    My goal is to have a user paste in the code as provided by the supplier into a textarea and then have it sanitized by clicking a button so they’re just left with the element and it’s content.

    Here’s is a pen of what I have so far. I have no idea of how close/far away I am from any success (or indeed if this is possible at all)

    Any help is, as ever, very much appreciated :)



    $( '#tidy' ).click(function() {
      var formContent = jQuery('textarea').val();
