Limit some markup in the html-editor


Is it possible to limit certain kind of markup in the HTML-editor when working with episerver? 
Editors sometimes copy/paste from word for example and it can include formatting that's not sutable for the HTML-editor. 
I only want headers, paragraphs, links and lists and any other kind of formatting (like tables) should be cleared from the editor. 

Hope this make sense and that someone knows how I can solve this! 

Thank you in advance,

You should be able to override valid_elements.

The way you do this is slightly different based on your CMS version, but I think adding this should to the trick.

.AddSetting("valid_elements", "h1,h2,h3,h4,h5,h6")

Thank you! Is this done in ExtendedTinyMceInitialization?

Yes, the initialization module class for TinyMCE configuration is called ExtendedTinyMceInitialization in the Alloy demo site. So, probably: yes.
