I suggest you re-read the message Jason was kind enough to send you. Maybe the AntiSamy policy you have chosen doesn't allow <p>.

The error messages provided by AntiSamy are intended to be helpfully the end user, not an indication of XSS.

Finally, the process of converting broken HTML is not always perfect.

When <p> is given as input parameter , antisamy finds it as XSS script. But when I give <p>/ or <p>& it is not working as intended.

Please suggest on the same.

When I gave Input as -1%22%2Balert%281214%29%2B%22' it is not considered as XSS Script in antisamy. Please suggest me how to resolve this
