count_words returns too few words when dealing with html tags

    XMLWordPrintable

Details

    Description

      The problem is strip_tags will join words together:

      <p>Some text</p>
      <p><br/><p>
      <p>Some more text</p>

      How many words ? Moodle thinks it's 4.

      Also count_letters includes the letters in HTML entities - eg &nbsp; is 6 letters.
