Remove the 'text' option from the submission form - causing problems with HTML display

Yes there is a problem with the submission system, and I think it is related to people changing the Content Type to "Text" and then copying and pasting from an HTML page thinking that the HTML would be stripped off (which is what I would have thought my CMS would do ...). But the best thing is to just leave the Content type set to "Mixed Text and HTML", and that seems to cause the least problems,

I am in the process of putting up the following notice where people submit audio: Note: please leave your Content Type as "Mixed Text & HTML" in your submission form, and preview your submission before submitting it to make sure everything is OK.

Some have you have changed it to 'text', and it seems like you posted html to your form, and this is causing display problems with your submission (i.e. your post displays incorrectly with HTML code being visible - which can be fixed after I approve the submission )

Style template does not have user modifiable variables - would need to update WebGUI code to get at these variables. Leave workaround (i.e. content type as "Text & HTML") as is - need to upgrade WebGUI to the 7.0 series.
