IR2101 cross-conduction

The IR2101 is an high and low driver typically used to drive MOSFET half bridges.

On this blog, it is said (IR2110 is almost the same as IT2101):

"IR2110 can't be used to drive both high-side and low-side MOSFETs simultaneously"

The only indication about that specific point I can find in the datasheet is the sentence:

"The output drivers feature a high pulse current buffer stage designed for minimum driver cross-conduction"

However the functional block diagram doesn't mention any exclusion of the HIN+LIN case, and they also show examples where HIN and LIN are switching from low to high simultaneously.

So, do you think I can cross-conduct my half-bridge by setting both pins to high with this driver?
