Well that was one my eventual goals for two reasons... one is that
AntiSamy wasn't
being actively maintained and I just replaced that one of the branches (sorry,
don't remember which one and I may not have even checked it in). The
other reason
is that there were 2 or 3 dependencies that were directly sucked in by AntiSamy
but not used elsewhere in ESAPI. Thus replacing AntiSamy with HTML Sanitizer
would replace it with something that was being maintained and also reduce
the total # of dependencies a bit.

And speaking of which, this is something that I figured you might be able to
work on since you are familiar with HTML Sanitizer. The only part that I had
swapped out was the part that was using AntiSamy.
