This function ( has literally never been used by anyone, ever. Besides the fact that it's worthless, no-one has noticed the error ("striped") on the doc page. We should completely remove the function and see if anyone notices.

A typo in a manual page is no reason for a function be removed.

and a quick check shows people are using it:*

I must say +1 for this.. even this not a bug, this function is just totally 

@johannes the search shows that this function has been used in one 
code file and covers just about every open source project in the 
word. (and 
not to mention that in the line the behavior of this function might actually 
result in 
unwanted results since it strips the html tags :D)

So I think that it fair to say that this function is not needed by anyone, it's 
pointless and can safely be removed in future php versions.
