HTML Sanitization

Looker limits which HTML tags, HTML tag attributes and CSS properties are allowed. This page lists the allowed tags, attributes, and properties. This HTML sanitization is on by default and can’t be edited.

Allowed HTML Tags

Only certain HTML tags will be rendered in the browser. Any other tags will be stripped from rendered HTML.

For instance, the following HTML:

<div class="pretty"><badtag></badtag></div>

will be rendered as:

<div class="pretty"></div>

Allowed HTML Attributes

Only certain HTML attributes will be rendered in the browser. Any other attributes will be stripped from rendered HTML. This also applies to the CSS properties for HTML style tags.

For instance, the following HTML:

<div class="pretty" badattr="uh-oh"></div>

Will be rendered as:

<div class="pretty"></div>
