Hey, Gerald. I should have provided an example. Sorry about that.
Let me give a little explanation for everyone's benefit:
All the inline modifiers can be made a little more explicit by
surrounding them with square brackets. So, if you want to make a link
to a "Wikipedia article about Textile":http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Textile_(markup_language)
, you can't get the last character of the link because how would
RedCloth know if the link ended with a parenthesis or you just
surrounded a link in parentheses (like "this":http://redcloth.org/)?
Square brackets to the rescue: ["Wikipedia article about Textile":http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Textile_(markup_language)
] works perfectly.
Same with your strikethrough: surrounding the strikethrough with
square brackets makes it work:
h1. [-vendor/plugins-] gems
Yes, it's annoying and it doesn't conform to Textile 2, but it saves a
lot of frustration over things being accidentally struck through,
which happened a lot with the old version. Try this with RedCloth 3.x:
If I use dashes--like this--to make my statement, it used to get
and you'll get
<p>If I use dashes-<del>like this</del>-to make my statement, it used
to get struck through.</p>
As I said in the ticket, if someone can come up with a patch that
doesn't sabotage normal text-with-hyphens, I'd be glad to accept it!
