figured it out

it works now. i added the following code to WA_Universal_Email/MailFormatting_PHP.php:

# 08 Aug 2010 ---- php_tip_how_strip_html_tags_web_page
function WA_StripTags($inStr) {
/* Get the file's character encoding from a <meta> tag */
preg_match( '@<meta\s+http-equiv="Content-Type"\s+content="([\w/]+)(;\s+charset=([^\s"]+))?@i', $inStr, $matches);
$encoding = $matches[3];

/* Convert to UTF-8 before doing anything else */
$utf8_text = iconv($encoding, "utf-8", $raw_text);

/* Strip HTML tags and invisible text */
$utf8_text = strip_html_tags($utf8_text);

/* Decode HTML entities */
$utf8_text = html_entity_decode($utf8_text, ENT_QUOTES, "UTF-8");

return $utf8_text;

# 08 Aug 2010 --- php_tip_how_strip_html_tags_web_page
* Remove HTML tags, including invisible text such as style and
* script code, and embedded objects. Add line breaks around
* block-level tags to prevent word joining after tag removal.
function strip_html_tags( $text )
$text = preg_replace(
/* Remove invisible content */
/* Add line breaks before and after blocks */
' ', ' ', ' ', ' ', ' ', ' ', ' ', ' ', ' ',
"\n\$0", "\n\$0", "\n\$0", "\n\$0", "\n\$0", "\n\$0",
"\n\$0", "\n\$0",
$text );
return strip_tags( $text );
