Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

I don't know if this is by design or not, but Stack Exchange accepts basic HTML in almost every thing you can write. I found out that I had a < strike > tag in my "Bio" and that isn't properly displayed in the "hover popup".

Here's the text I have when I edit my profile:

I use Apple hardware and Mac OS X since the age of dawn but work doing <strike>C#.NET Windows Programming inside VMWare/Parallels</strike> Android development using Eclipse and the Android SDK. 

And this is how it looks:

enter image description here

The Strike tag is ignored.

Of course it's not ignored in the profile page.

Shall I remove that or is this a bug (or a feature)?

This is by design we support very limited markup in the summary; if you want the summary to have different text, we allow you to do that. Strike-through is a prime example for that functionality.

Thanks. I didn't know that. – Martín Marconcini Dec 12 '11 at 22:56
