Using an emoji mid-sentence breaks strikethrough effect
Use case: type
<s>prefix :x: suffix</s>
Expected result: Both prefix and suffix should be getting the strikethrough effect.
Actual result: Only prefix gets it:
It doesn't just break that construct.
What's more, links also break things.
As do square brackets:
<super></super> should be superscript.
Result: <super></super> should be superscript.
So much for building your own wiki-style footnotes.
Edit: Nevermind, screwed up and used the wrong tags. DERP.
Umm... nope. The code for superscript is
<super>, (blame the designers of HTML) and
<sup></sup>works just fine: .
Good call, I can never remember that off the top of my head since I don't use
<sup>enough. I can remember
<sub>just fine though. It does get tricky trying to combine that with a link, but that takes it back to @dkf's comment.
testing the scenario from @dkf oh look, mentions break it too!

God damn, even italics break "things" (to borrow dkf's term) ...

Mixing HTML and Markdown can cause edge cases, yes. If you want it to get extra crazy try putting some bbcode in there for good measure
Okay, so then the issue is HTML causing "edge cases"... [b]At least mixing BBcode with markdown still works okay! [/b] (though it obviously cannot work on emoticons ^^ )

Noted some days ago. BTW, is there any way of having anchors so that we can link midway through a long post? e.g. I'd like to link to the "Markup in general" section of that post. I tried a few <a tags but they didn't seem to work, notably adding #anchorname to the URL totally broke page rendering, at least on try.discourse.org.
Good news, this is fixed in master. Should be deployed with the next update
