Editing text, BBCode, "strikethrough", etc.

Sorry if this has already been addressed. Obviously the BBcode for "strikethrough" isn't enabled. Any chance that it can/will be enabled? Any particular reasons why not?

"Anything" that HTML can do more or less can be done in the phpBB code but it isn't merely a matter of enabling it; we have to build the syntax for anything on top of what currently exists.

Eg. If we wanted it to be [st] we would define that and then come up with a rule to put whatever it is encompassed in withing <st> tags.

So for something thing like that, easy though if there are multiple ones, the time adds up. I'm planning on fixing up all the emoticons and some other formattimg this month now that we've (as far as I can tell) taken care of the bigger bugs. If there's anything else for string wise that people would find useful,post it (preferrably here) and I'll try to get it all taken care of at once.
