<p>While scripts, applets, binary objects and other potentially executable code is excluded from the profiles used in XHTML-IM, malicious entities still may inject those and thus exploit entities which rely on this exclusion. Entities thus MUST assume that inbound XHTML-IM may be mailicious and MUST sanitize it according to the profile used, by ignoring elements and removing attributes as needed.</p>

<ul>
<li>Not make hyperlinks clickable</li>
<li>Not fetch or present images but instead show only the 'alt' text.</li>
