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

If a question contains a <s> tag in the first sentence, this is shown as plain text in the summary in the question list which is confusing.


As the strikeout is typically used to show where an error was corrected, either the strikeout should be rendered in the summary or the struck text should be hidden.

It affects sub ans sup too.… 106 items didn't sound like too big an index – Jeremy French Oct 15 '09 at 9:05

Sorry, HTML is not rendered in the summary; Markdown is shown as ASCII there too.

So how about cutting out any text within <s>..</s> in the summary? That would not require any extra markup. – Perpetual Motion Goat Jul 6 '09 at 11:54
