            Bug ID: 25205
           Summary: Iimlement what HTML5 says, whenever NU Validator
                    encounters the <strike> element
           Product: Nu Markup Checker
           Version: unspecified
          Hardware: PC
                OS: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: General
          Assignee: mike+validator@w3.org
          Reporter: xn--mlform-iua@xn--mlform-iua.no
        QA Contact: www-validator-cvs@w3.org

This bug report has this thread in www-validator@ as starting point:

http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-validator/2014Mar/0039.html

STATUS:

1) Document containing <strike>:
   data:text/html,<!DOCTYPE html><title>S<%2Ftitle><strike>stricken<%2Fstrike>
2) NU validator’s response:
   ”The strike element is obsolete. Use CSS instead.”
3) What the HTML spec says about <strike>:
   ]] strike
      Use del instead if the element is marking an edit,
      otherwise use s instead. [[
   http://www.w3.org/html/wg/drafts/html/master/obsolete.html#strike

ISSUE:

Validator does not implement the advice given in the spec. Why advice about
using CSS when the spec propose to replace the element with <s> or <del>? 

EXPECTED OUTCOME:

Validator should advice authors to change <strike> to <s> or <del>.
