[Web Comm] Drupal Transition and Automated Web Page Cleanup

Sorry, this mail client program makes it hard to add comments.
Drupals accepts, out-of-the-box: limited HTML (small set of tags), plain text, full HTML or PHP code (usually disabled for public contributors for security purposes).
Drupal stores exactly what you enter, but you then tell it what the type of code/text is - i.e. Is it full HTML or is it PHP - and, if you have permissions it will serve all the content up exactly as you entered it.  This means there can be, literally, no effort or cleanup required to get our current content ported.

I am getting the impression that Drupal does not use upload html directly,
but rather it processes it into some internal format, and then produces
new HTML of it's own construction.  Is that right?

If that is the case, then we should be planning on human review of all
unusual/non-compliant web pages since we can expect them to subsubstantially
transformed, right?

In this case, we might as well cleanup the web pages as we go, and hopefully
the scripts can identify all pages which had substantial stuff changed
in the process so we can review them manually.
