To fix when this is closed:
Try editing this card and making some text. When you click save, it will look normal.
If you edit again and look at the HTML, you'll see there's still a span & /span around it. Seems like if everything in a span is stripped out, then the span itself should be also. Ticket? --John
that's done through a style attribute on a span. If we don't strip the style attributes out, any kind of crap in the world can make it through. I used to spend tons of time fixing resultant weirdness. We could actually parse style attributes and pick favorites, but that's a big task. I lowered the priority to "low", because given the effort I don't think it ranks.

Then shall i remove strikethrough from our default TinyMCE? (I'm pretty sure this used to work, did we used to do it with something like , and might it make sense to go back to that?)

I did take style out of span at some point, which solved a lot of problems. Yes, I think we should take strikethrough out of our default TinyMCE. I just took it out of ICAH, english, and wagn.org.

I don't think we have any kind of plan for re-introducing this yet. would probably involve more control over stripping. by default I think we want to strip style tags, which is how the strikethrough works.
