Issue with struck-out text

This text should be struck out, but it doesn't work.
This DOES work, for some reason.
Also, why are there both "stike" and "strikeout" options if they both do the same thing?

"Should be", according to who? As far as I know, phpBB doesn't come with strike-out tag enabled, so the "strike" and "strikeout" tags were probably added by a mod of this board at some point. No reason why "s" couldn't be added as well, though.

It doesn't does work now.

HTML5 retconned a lot of old presentational elements, such as <b>, <i>, and <hr>, to have semantic meaning. The <s> element, for example, "represents contents that are no longer accurate or no longer relevant". For example, "doesn't" above is "no longer accurate".

I doubt this will work... Oh yes, so it does.
