Hey everyone I was wondering what you all thought of the idea of being able to use strikethrough font in the forum. There are a few uses, could probably be added to the BBCode pretty easily, and no harm from it, so what do you say?

I've wished I could use somthing like that a few times on more than just Ozzu, I'd like to see them follow the HTML elements they represent though.

The INS (inserted) & DEL (deleted) elements would be nice for the Job Offers forum.

Code: [ Select ]
<!--=================== Inserted/Deleted Text ============================-->


<!-- INS/DEL are handled by inclusion on BODY -->
<!ELEMENT (INS|DEL) - - (%flow;)*   -- inserted text, deleted text -->
<!ATTLIST (INS|DEL)
 %attrs;               -- %coreattrs, %i18n, %events --
 cite    %URI;     #IMPLIED -- info on reason for change --
 datetime  %Datetime;   #IMPLIED -- date and time of change --

I always thought <s> was nicer than <del>, and was surprised to see they (W3 Standards People) changed it. So if it were me building the site, I would accept both [del] and [s] as syntax, have the default(when you use the posting buttons) be [s], and the final result show as <del>.

And you never added your vote...

[s] could stand for superscript or subscript too though.

I think superscript and subscript should be [sup] and [sub] respectively, if they were added.

To reflect the HTML tags, yes. Ozzu used to allow HTML I recall, but then stopped.

I bet allowing simple HTML is on Bigwebs list of things to do come to think of it.

I should think it shouldn't take more than 30 minutes to add [s], [sub], and [sup] to the BBCode.

True, but if allowing simple HTML was on your list of things to do, adding thoose bbcodes would be a waste of time wouldn't it ?

How long does adding simple HTML take?

Probably not long by itself, but when there's tons of other things to do, somthing like that gets placed on the back burner because life can go on without it.
