# html tags in title, e.g. s̶t̶r̶i̶k̶e̶ ̶t̶h̶r̶o̶u̶g̶h̶

I thought it was a good idea to edit the title of the following question: What is the source of this E̶r̶d̶ő̶s̶ quote?

I wanted to strike through (like this) the name Erdős, but apparently the html tag does not work for titles

<s>...</s>


Is this a bug or is this restriction intended? Is there a reason why we should not allow strike through of characters? The question What HTML tags are allowed on Stack Exchange sites? explains what subset of html is allowed in questions; what is the subset that is allowed for titles?

• I retagged support instead of bug to avoid somebody else having to add a status-tag. – user9072 Oct 26 '13 at 14:12
