HTML s: Main Tips

  • Using <s> tags puts an HTML line through text inside them (a strikethrough).
  • You may use it to show that the text is no longer relevant.
  • <s> tags support global attributes.
  • You must use the closing tag.

Adding an HTML Line Through Text

HTML s element is used to convey that certain information is no longer relevant or accurate. Wrapping text in HTML <s> tags draws a line across it:

Example
<p><s>This text is not relevant.</s></p>
<p>This is the new accurate text.</p>

Tip: to show that something was deleted during editing, you should use <del> (with <ins>, if needed).
