This was posted by David Vaughan a couple of months ago:

function stripHTML aData
   repeat for each line aLine in data
     repeat while matchchunk(aLine,"<*>")
       delete char offset("<",aLine) to offset(">",aLine) of aLine
     end repeat
     put aLine & return after outData
   end repeat
   return outData
end stripHTML

I haven't tried it myself, but it looks good.
