I'm focusing on a task in php to permit individuals to view and election on blogs and to get this done I allow individuals to submit the rss of the blog after which instantly grab a posts full text.

I've come upon an issue with the description text. Wordpress does some formatting to get rid of html tags along with a couple of other bits like fancy quotes and I must understand what exactly they are doing into it prior to it being published towards the rss.

I've been searching with the Wordpress files and can't get my mind round the get_option function to obtain the proper code.

Could somebody please point me within the right direction?

    function get_option( $option, $default = false ){...}
    //this is the function used to get the blog information found in functions.php
