Minor issue with <ins> and <del>

As you can see, although the preview works fine, the colour doesn’t appear in the bio. The same thing applies to <del>. Is this intentional?

I’m not sure if it’s intentional, but it seems reasonable to me. When I try using an ins tag in my bio, my browser’s default styles are applied to it (text-decoration: underline).

This would be because the relevant CSS styles aren’t applied to the bio display area, just to composer previews and post bodies.

We allow other things like summaries in profiles (and also our new <mark> addition), so updating this to work consistently seems fine.

Understood. Thanks everyone for your replies!
