HTML <s> (Strikethrough) Tag

<p>This text is <s>striked</s>.</p>


The <s> element renders the enclosed text with a line drawn through it and is a synonym for the strike element.

This element should act the same as the strike element.

It is possible to indicate strikethrough text using a style sheet with the text-decoration property set to line-through.

Note: The <s> tag was deprecated in HTML 4, but it has been redefined in HTML5. However, use the <del> element instead if enclosed text represents deleted text.
