unexpected output from text/html input

Hi There

First of all thanks for all the hard work. What a great resource. I'm so glad I stumbled across this before duplicating (baddly) the project.

I'm comparing the output from the Calais rest service on my own basic unitility classes making a http post. The results I get differ wildly from the output I get from Calais.net. Looking at the results it appears that the call from Calais.net is not cleaning the HTML or is cleaning the HTML differently to the restful service on api.opencalais.com/tag/rs/enrich . I've checked the input parameter is set corrrectly to text/html but I cant replicate the same results in my call to the rest service no matter what input type I select.

If I take the trouble to pass in some specific chunks of content rather than the screen scraped response html then I'm getting equivalent results.

Why is OpenCalais.net processing the html differently to an equivalanet call to the restful service? Am I doing something wrong or just fundamentally missing the obvious?
