Does not work for HTML
By , for WP 4.1.1

Turned my html into "WordPress corrected" html, just like the WYSIWYG editor. Why can't this just stick the html into the template? To be more specific...
My INPUT:

<p>stuff<a href="link"><h5>linkTitle</h5></a></p>
<p><h4>title</h4>stuff</p>

This plugin's OUTPUT:

<p>stuff<a href="link"></a></p>
<h5>linkTitle</h5>
<p></p>
<br>
<p></p>
<h4>title<h4>
then my paragraph completely outside of any p tag
<p></p>

See the difference? This is exactly the kind of garbage I would expect this plugin to NOT do. Now I know nesting headers in a paragraph isn't "proper" coding. But this is 'Merica and ain't nobody gonna tell me I can't nest headers in paragraphs. The point being, I was looking for a plugin that didn't reorder code and this did not help me.

just works

Great plugin Taylor. @ashbryant started a support thread about V5 support. Started working on it myself, but if you already got it in the works let me know so I don't waste too much time trying to figure it out!

Amazing!
