I tried strike out several paragraphs of text by using a single pair of <s> </s> tags wrapping all of the text; but only the first and last paragraphs were struck out.

 

 

Example 1:

First paragraph. Should be struck out.

Second paragraph. Should be struck out.

Third paragraph. Should be struck out.

Fourth paragraph. Should be struck out.

I also discovered if there's a blank line between the tags and the text that nothing is struck at all.

 

 

Example 2:

First paragraph. Should be struck out. This time an empty line is between the <s> and this paragraph.

Second paragraph. Should be struck out.

Third paragraph. Should be struck out.

Fourth paragraph. Should be struck out. This time an empty line is between the </s> and this paragraph.

    @Oded looks like it's browser specific. It's happening in FF7, but not IE8 or Chrome 15. – Dan Neely Dec 19 '11 at 21:08

    @DanNeely A screenshot would be helpful in this case. – Adam Lear Dec 19 '11 at 21:23

    No-repro. All paragraphs struck. WebKit browser on MacOS. – Josh Caswell Dec 19 '11 at 21:36
  • Worked in Opera too. Unless it affects FF 3.6 (only old FF version with significant user share); this can probably be filed under not worth fixing. – Dan Neely Dec 20 '11 at 13:23

    Maybe some Firefox plugin you have messing with the HTML layout? – Shadow The Dragon Wizard Dec 20 '11 at 13:24
  • @ShadowWizard The only plugin I have that should be messing with the page would be ABP; disabling it was the first thing I tried. It didn't help. – Dan Neely Dec 20 '11 at 13:33

    Hmm.. as it happens only with FF7 so far think it's indeed not worth spending much time on it then.. – Shadow The Dragon Wizard Dec 20 '11 at 13:38

This is not a bug. In HTML, <s> is an inline element, meaning that it is not intended to contain multiple paragraphs or other “block” content; if you do, it is up to browser error-recovery what results. You should strike out each paragraph individually, or use <del> instead, which can be used as either block or inline.

    ... or you should use DEL, since it can act as a block-level element or an inline-level one, quite uniquely (apart from its sister element, INS) for HTML. And, unlike STRIKE/S, it's not deprecated ... – Bobby Jack Mar 20 '12 at 19:44
