That issue was discussed in this list and m0n0wall-general list so many times. 
Officially there will be no support for HTTP traffic filtering by the m0n0wall 
itself. But you can setup a proxy server (SQUID + Dansguardian) in you local 
network and redirect all the HTTP traffic transparently to that box, also 
you'll need to deny all HTTP traffic from LAN and allow only proxy server to go 
to WEB.

That's one solution, that make common sense, since m0n0wall is the router and 
firewall box only. But.... I'm thinking of creating a patched version of 
m0n0wall that will have SQUID+Dansguardian and maybe Bind running on it, so I 
can host DNS for myself and friends. Of course it woun't run on embedded PCs 
like Soekris boards, since it requires a lot more CPU resources and RAM, but I 
don't see any problems running it on regular PC (PIII and 250 MB) with HDD.

Anyone willing to collaborate on that?
