Friday doesn't strip all HTML when it copies to the clipboard

When you Shift+Click a question, Friday copies the answer to the clipboard so you can paste it into some other program.

When it does this, Friday assumes you want to copy just the text, not a lot of HTML formatting code as well, but it lets you decide which HTML code should be stripped out and which shouldn't.

The routine that strips HTML from answers only strips html that's in your custom tags list.
In fact, it only strips HTML from tags that have a checkmark next to "Strip from clipboard" in the Custom Tags editor.

It strips the tags as entered, and both the uppercased and lowercased versions of the same tags. If you enter, e.g. <YourTag> as a custom tag, it'll also remove <YOURTAG> and <yourtag> but not <yourTag> or some other variant.
