Hi All,

So I am using JQuery to create a button in a SharePoint Discussion List that then takes me to a create new project form and then on this form have JQuery pulling the content I want from the Discussion List and dropping it in the RTE text area and that works fine except it brings ALL the html tags with it eg.


Here is my code below, I need to find out how to remove these tags and keep the formatting.

function GetParam(name)
		name = name.replace(/[\[]/,"\\\[").replace(/[\]]/,"\\\]");
		var regexS = "[\\?&]"+name+"=([^]*)";
		var regex = new RegExp( regexS );
		var results = regex.exec( unescape(window.location.href) );
		if( results == null )
		return "";
		return results[1];

$(document).ready(function() {
	//SP2010AddNewify("Customer","/International/Lists/mE%20Clients/NewForm.aspx", "mE Clients");
	ExecuteOrDelayUntilScriptLoaded(GetBlogBody, "sp.js");	

/////////////////////////////////GET ITEM////////////////////////////////

function GetBlogBody() {

    var id = GetParam("blogid");
    var clientContext = SP.ClientContext.get_current();
    var oList = clientContext.get_web().get_lists().getByTitle('Team Discussion');     
    var camlQuery = new SP.CamlQuery();
    camlQuery.set_viewXml("<view><query><where><eq><fieldref name="ID" /><value type="Counter">" + id + "</value></eq></where></query></view>");
    //camlQuery.set_viewXml("<view><query><where><eq><fieldref name="Title" /><value type="Text">Mandarin prices</value></eq></where></query></view>");       
    this.collListItem = oList.getItems(camlQuery);     
    clientContext.executeQueryAsync(Function.createDelegate(this, this.onQuerySucceeded), Function.createDelegate(this, this.onQueryFailed));        


function onQuerySucceeded(sender, args) {
	//alert('Query Success');
    var listItemInfo = '';
    var listItemEnumerator = collListItem.getEnumerator();
    var contentbody = "";
    while (listItemEnumerator.moveNext()) {
    var oListItem = listItemEnumerator.get_current();
    				      contentbody = oListItem.get_item('Body');         
	}//  end while

} // End Function

function CopyBodyToDescription(contentbody) {
		var systemDescriptionRTETextArea = $("textarea[Title='Description']");
}//  End Function

function onQueryFailed(sender, args) {
        alert('Request failed. ' + args.get_message() + '\n' + args.get_stackTrace());
