Marked down strike command doesn't work on LaTeX. Here is an example:

Here is a stroked out text including the following LaTeX equation $A = B$ but strike is not working on it!

This is probably because of how MathJax interacts (or rather does not interact) with the surrounding text. Since the surrounding text could get arbitrarily large before encountering a markup command, it's not surprising this will happen. There's no real way to deal with this.

  • $\begingroup$ If there were a way of striking through an equation in LaTeX, you could get around this problem. Does anybody know whether there is? $\endgroup$ – Peter Shor Feb 3 '13 at 17:35
  • $\begingroup$ @Peter, there should be something for it as there are \overline and \underline. Maybe a question for TeX - LaTeX? $\endgroup$ – Kaveh Feb 3 '13 at 23:55
