Is there away I can format text so that text is crossed off? I believe with Textile, you simply put "-" on either side of the text and it appears to be marked off. Any suggestions?

    Lighthouse uses Markdown actually with a few custom textile-like properties, but I don;t believe there is a default strike in place

    You can use html, such as <strike> or if you don't care about correctness just use the shorter <s> tag

    <s>this is striked</s>

    <del> would technically be the best option though, if you care about that sort of thing. However, we'll never bug you if you use <s> and invalidate one of MY Lighthouse/Tender pages :)

    Yeah, <del> is technically the correct way to do it. Strike was depreciated or something a while back. My apologies.

    Well, I used the other way and it worked just fine. I guess I'll switch it.
