Wanted to ask some opinions about how you guys deal with HTML text added into custom widgets textares.

From my side, I receive a lot of messages from users telling me they want to use all HTML tags inside widgets.

Are you using some custom options in admin to enable/disable using HTML in widgets textareas?

Are you using sanitization functions like

echo wp_kses( $content, array(  
    'strong' => array(),  
    'a' => array('href')  
) );  

and let them use some of the HTML tags?

Or you tell them is not safe to use HTML tags inside widgets.

Any other ideeas?
