XHTML mobile profile HTML transformer and cleaner for Pyhton

Project Description

gomobile.xhtmlmp provides XHTML mobile profile cleaner. It takes in arbitary HTML code and turns it to valid XHTML-MP code which can be dropped in XHTML MP page.

The code will also filter possible malicious code in external feed content, like <script> tags.


This package has no dependencies to Plone or GoMobile and can be used with any Python code.


  • Turn any incoming HTML/XHTML to mobile profile compatible
    • Enforce ALT text on images - especially useful for external tracking images (feedburner tracker)
  • Protect against Cross-Site Scripting Attacks (XSS) and other nastiness, as provided by lxml.html.clean
  • Unicode compliant - eats funky characters



This function will do everyhing you need.

Run XHTML mobile profile cleaner for HTML code:

@param html: HTML as a string or lxml Document
@return: XHTML, utf-8 encoded string


from gomobile.xhtmlmp.transformers.xhtmlmp_safe import clean_xhtml_mp

html = '<img src="">'
output = clean_xhtml_mp(html)
self.assertEqual(output, '<img src="" alt=""/>', "Got:" + output)


Future features will include:

  • Automatic resize for image sources
