Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 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 noticed yesterday that the edit history contains unclosed tags if a <del> tag is removed from it. See revision 5 of this question's edit history to see what I'm talking about. (Screenshot below.) In revision 4 I put the text "say, 30 minutes?" inside a <del></del>. Then in revision 5 I rolled back to revision 3 (i.e. removed the <del></del>). However, in the edit history for revision 5, the <del> tag is never closed, making it look like the whole second paragraph was deleted as well.

I don't know if this is specific to the <del> tag or not. I have at least confirmed (on this question's edit history) that the problem isn't reproducible for the <b> tag.
