First of all, why you need to strip the html?
you can place them as is on your page with your won formatting.
if you need to store the data in your database the you probably want to extract the text...
A simple xpath could be done, or just a simple replace of tags if the feed is not that big.
and better yet, ask the rss feed to strip the formatting, because it's rss.
you decide how to format the data, not the rss-provider..
The "HtmlUtils" extension has what you want.
