DOMPurify.sanitize(marked.parse(`<img src="x" onerror="alert('not happening')">`));


# Example with stdin input
$ marked -o hello.html
hello world
$ cat hello.html
<p>hello world</p>
# Print all options
$ marked --help


<!doctype html>
  <meta charset="utf-8"/>
  <title>Marked in the browser</title>
  <div id="content"></div>
  <script src=""></script>
    document.getElementById('content').innerHTML =
      marked.parse('# Marked in the browser\n\nRendered by **marked**.');
