I do my HTML authoring under Windows so I'm only aware of a Windows editor
that does this. It's HTML Writer (donationware). To get info on where to get
it (although it should be available in a number of anonymous ftp sites),
check out its home page at <http://wwf.et.byu.edu/~nosackk/htmlwrit.html>.

Under the HTML menu, there is a Remove Codes option that strips code from
selected text. However, it does not remove special and escaped characters
(i.e., &quot;, etc.). You have to remove these by hand.

I hope this helps.
