Thank you Elika. This is much better.

I'm looking at legal style to understand the legal ramifications of keeping one line-through across the line as opposed to striking through the characters.

An single element can only generate a maximum of one underline, one line-through,
and one overline. The number of line segments drawn for each will depend on
how many line boxes the element spans, and also how many bits of content it is
required to skip. Assuming that no elements in the line box are affected by
relative positioning, it must be possible to connect all line segments drawn
in each line box due that element's underline, line-through, or overline into
a single continuous straight line segment of a constant thickness and color.

The spec is currently ambiguous about whether the text decoration lines'
thickness and position with respect to the element's baseline must be consistent
across line boxes.

Is there anything left unclear?
