[dropping www-html from cc list]

Yes it doesn't seem to be supported in mozilla yet which is a shame, the
css mozillla uses could probably be augmented with something
doing a diagonal line like this:


      background-image:url(diag.png);
      background-repeat:no-repeat;


although it would look better (as it scales to fit the text box) if you
could use an svg image  but apparently svg isn't supported for
background-image:url yet either even in FF 3 beta.

google turned up this example of a diagonal strikeout, save me coding
one:-)

That's just an html example but you should be able to style
menclose[notation="updiagonalstrike"] the same way.
