<strike> was deprecated in HTML 4.01 and is not supported XHTML 1.0 Strict DTD or XHTML 1.1, so it shouldn't be allowed in comments, at least by default.

+1, but I'm marking with 2nd-opinion.

#2 @markjaquith

  • Keywords bg|commit added; bg|2nd-opinion removed
  • Milestone set to 2.1
  • Owner changed from anonymous to markjaquith
  • Priority changed from normal to low
  • Severity changed from normal to minor
  • Status changed from new to assigned

If it breaks XHTML 1.0 strict validation, we should axe it.

The problem is del is both an inline and block level tag, and can seriously mess up page layouts if allowed.

Same problem with &lt;ins&gt; ... currently, you can't use &lt;ins&gt; as block level in WP.

Is the appropriate thing just to remove <strike> and not replace it with <del>?
