I don't understand the question, I'm afraid.  Can you show us the code
you're using and explain what's happening at the moment and what you'd
prefer to be happening?

You need to specify which HTML tags are allowed when you instantiate
the formatter object:

  my $formatter = Wiki::Toolkit::Formatter::UseMod->new(
                      allowed_tags        => [qw(b i)],

Any tags other than the ones mentioned there will be escaped.
