Can't use strikethrough in TinyMCE under Chrome

When using Chrome (tested with Windows and Mac), the Strikethrough feature in TinyMCE doesn't work.

To reproduce this, open any post for editing under Chrome, and use TinyMCE to set a strikethrough (third button from the right by default). TinyMCE adds the tag <s>example</s>, and then removes it if you switch to HTML view or click Update/Publish.

On Firefox, for e.g., TinyMCE uses <strike>example</strike>, which then gets converted to <span style="text-decoration: line-through;">example</span>.

(Note that idealy, TinyMCE should probably just use <del>example</del>, like the HTML editor does.)

Did I say third from the right? I meant third from the left. It's only third from the right on RTL blogs. This issue is unrelated to RTL.
