A better textilize helper that doesn't use the :hard_breaks option of RedCloth, like Rails' built-in textilize does (for whatever reason). Also escapes any HTML entered by the user (instead of dismissing it, as RedCloth's :filter_html option would do). This my not be what you need, but it's exactly what I need. :)
def textilize(text) RedCloth.new(text.gsub(/, '<').gsub(/>/, '>')).to_html end
