Continuing the discussion from Feature Request: Strikethrough text:
I very much would like to see this in the spec as well.
I use this feature all the time in GFM, pandoc and friends.
In my opinion, strikethrough is a phenomenally expressive use of formatting, and I
fucking hate it find it quite irksome using other renderers lacking this feature, forcing me to drop to HTML.
So, with respect, can I ask what is the rationale for not including this in the spec?
If one is going to include variants like “pandoc (strict)”, one should also take into account
redcarpet --parse-strikethroughand other renderers that have optional support for this feature.
If one counts multiple versions of
markdown.pl, etc., one should also count variants of other renderers, i.e., vanilla discount in addition to rdiscount, canonical GFM in addition to “cebe/markdown GFM”, etc.
strikethroughis now default in the current version of marked.
