Issues with strikethrough <s> HTML5 tag


(Joshua Rosenfeld) #1


Using <s> </s> tags with multiple paragraphs produces inconsistent results in the preview pane versus a baked post.

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Create multiple paragraphs with blank lines separating them
  2. Add <s> in front of first paragraph
  3. Add ` at end of second (or later) paragraph

Expected Results:

All text between <s> and </s> is striked out

Actual Results:

Preview pane shows expected results. Only first paragraph in baked (submitted) post is striked out.


I was able to replicate this on, however try is a beta ahead (10) of stonehearth. See post below:

It works as expected there. 3 paragraphs with strikethrough.
