You mean something like this?

<?page title="" contentType="text/html;charset=UTF-8"?>

<script type="text/javascript"><![CDATA[

    function removeHTMLTags() {
        var strInputCode = $("$txtInput").val(); 
        strInputCode = strInputCode.replace(/&(lt|gt);/g, function (strMatch, p1){
                return (p1 == "lt")? "<" : ">";
        var strTagStrippedText = strInputCode.replace(/<\/?[^>]+(>|$)/g, "");


<window title="" border="none">

        <textbox id="txtInput" multiline="true" rows="10" width="500px" height="200px" 
                placeholder="Place here the HTML code" 
                onChanging='Clients.evalJavaScript("removeHTMLTags();")' />         

        <textbox id="txtOutput" multiline="true" rows="10" width="500px" height="200px" 
                placeholder="Output result" />


Hope that helps, Costas
