Testing with <http://software.hixie.ch/utilities/js/live-dom-viewer/?% 
3C%21DOCTYPE%20html%3E%3Cstyle%3E%23t%E91%5C%24t%7Btext-decoration% 
3Aline-through%7D%3C/style%3E%3Cp%20id%3D%22t%E91%24t%22%3EFAIL>  
(FAIL should be striked out, ), Saf3/Mac, Fx2/Mac, Op9.2/Mac, iCab3/ 
Mac, IE6/Win, and IE7/Win all strike it out. IE5/Mac is the only  
tested browser which does not. Identical results testing with @class.
