Delete Del


Ins and del elements are used to show the differences between previous revision and current one of posts/pages. An ordinary XHTML+CSS output, ins elements are shown as underline, del elements are shown as strikeout text.
As RSS 1.0 feeds, all XHTML markups are eliminated. Ins and del markup are also removed. Readers of RSS 1.0 feeds cannot identify the ins and del markups.
It is safe that ins markups are erased, but removing del markup is harmful. The text inside del elements are also needed to be erased.

This plugin does that: removing del elements with included text from RSS/ATOM feeds.

Also, HTML comments in post/page content causes syntax corrupt with current WordPress HTML filter. For this purpose, this plugin removes HTML comments () from feeds and post/page content before WordPress HTML filter.
