1. In earlier HTML standards, the HTML
<s> tags could be used to render a text with a line through it, but this was discouraged in HTML4 and XHTML, and
<strike> was obsoleted in HTML5. This is because the
<s> tag was taken as a purely styling element. To indicate deleted content, the
<del> tag is used in HTML5, and it is rendered similarly. Compare:
<strike>Today's Special: Salmon</strike> NO LONGER AVAILABLE <s>Today's Special: Salmon</s> NO LONGER AVAILABLE <span style="text-decoration:line-through;">Today's Special: Salmon</span> SOLD OUT <del>Today's Special: Salmon</del> NO LONGER AVAILABLE
