Does plone have a built in system/method that I could call for
 stripping HTML tags from text?

 I've created a portal type that uses body text for the description as well.
 It uses portal_transforms to make description be returned as plain text.

 Here's a snippet from my code

    del schema['description']
    def Description(self):
         custom description method
        portal_transforms = getToolByName(self, 'portal_transforms')
        return self.getText(mimetype = 'text/plain')

 The problem is I keep getting html tags like <p> and <br /> etc... in
