This page has been flagged with the following issues:
<del> element indicates text that has been deleted from the document. Browsers normally strike a line through deleted text.
Besides the universal attributes the following attributes are supported:
<cite>attribute may be used to specify the address of a document that explains the change. When that document is long, for instance the minutes of a meeting, authors are encouraged to include a fragment identifier pointing to the specific part of that document that discusses the change. If present, it must be a URL potentially surrounded by spaces that explains the change.
<datetime>attribute may be used to specify the time and date of the change. If present, it must be a valid date string with optional time.
This example uses the
<del>' element to mark deleted text.
<del datetime="1997-10-01T12:15:30-05:00">This text has been revised.</del>
View live exampleThis example uses
<del> elements to explain changes in a document
<p>I <del>am</del><ins>was</ins> on vacation in <del>France</del><ins>Italy</ins>.</p> <p> <del>It is supposed to be sunny and hot.</del> <ins>It rained in France so we decided to go to Italy instead.</ins> </p>
Typical browser default CSS properties for the
display: inline; text-decoration: line-through;
<del> appear to be similar, namely marking obsolete content, but they differ in semantics.
<del> marks text that has been removed from the document, but
<s> marks text that is to be kept in the document, but made clear that its content is no longer accurate.
For Internet Explorer 8 and later the value of the cite attribute depends on the current document compatibility mode.
