You could process their input before committing it to file/database
to strip out rogue tags/attributes (for the former, something like
PHP's strip_tags function can come in handy
<http://uk.php.net/manual/en/function.strip-tags.php>)

But yes, I agree that - without proper training and guidelines for
content managers, even a sophisticated technical system will still
allow users to enter any old cr*p ;)
