Strikethrough in H1 not working

Reported by Jason Garber | July 23rd, 2008 @ 08:33 AM | in 4.0.1

From the mailing list:


Congratulations to the RedCloth 4.0.0 release and thanks for the

outstanding work and all your efforts.

I've upgraded the slideshow (S9) gem that lets you author

slides/presentations in Textile to use RedCloth 4.0.0 to test out the

new machinery. (You can find some samples @

http://slideshow.rubyforge.org/s... )

All works great except for one slide in the Merb deck. The slide title reads:

-vendor/plugins- gems

Before 4.0.0 that would translate to:

vendor/plugins gem

But now no longer honors the deletetion modifier and just ends up as:

-vendor/plugins- gem

Anyways, thanks again for the outstanding work and all your efforts

to make the RedCloth 4.0.0 release happen.

    Arg. I've tried ten times to get it to show up right. The point is, h1. -strikethrough- doesn't work.

    I looked at how to implement this and I don't see a good way. Strikethroughs were one of the sorest points of the old version--stuff would get struck through everywhere!--and so _why decided strikethroughs would only be allowed if they had spaces before and after the struck phrase.

    So, you can use square brackets to force a strikethrough. Also, if someone can come up with a patch that doesn't sabotage normal text-with-hyphens, I'd be glad to accept it.
