This applies to versions >=0.93, which strip HTML by default.

For 1.0, reenable the 'set html' setting to revive the functionality of having the HTML provided if it is desired. Client-side scripts can be written to filter and translate some of the HTML. If the HTML is stripped, links which are formatted into anchor tags and given descriptions (like when inserting a link using Gaim or the official AIM client) are stripped down to plain text and the URL is dropped.

Also, HTML filtering should be done on AIM messages that come in via an ICQ connection. *sigh*

Resolution: fixed
Status: newclosed

Fixed in [26]. The option is now a semi-boolean called strip_html. semi-boolean because it can also be set to "always", in which case HTML will be stripped from all messages, not just the ones from an AIM connection. This is necessary for people who have AIM people in their ICQ contact list.
