serialization.optimizeTags Boolean (default: false)

Indicates whether optizable tags should be removed from the DOM. Currently, optimizable tags are span and font elements with no attributes and no decoration or formatting applied (via inline styles/attributes).


<textarea id="editor"></textarea>
  value: "<p><span>non-decorated text</span></p><p><span style=\"text-decoration: underline;\">underline text</span></p>",
  serialization: {
    optimizeTags: true
/* The result can be observed in the DevTools(F12) console of the browser. */
console.log($("#editor").data("kendoEditor").value()); // logs "The character &auml; is an umlaut"
