HTML strike tagWhen writing in HTML, the <strike> tag was an inline element used to draw a strikethrough on a section of text. However, this tag is obsolete, and you should use either the <s> or <del> tag in its place. The following sections contain information about the <strike> tag, including an example of it in use, as well as related attributes and browser compatibility.

Tip: You may also use CSS to create a strikethrough using the attributed/value pair "text-decoration:line-through;" with <style>.

Example code

<p>There is regular text, and there is <strike>strikethrough text
</strike>.</p>

Example result

There is regular text, and there is strikethrough text.

Attributes

Within an HTML tag, an attribute dictates certain aspects of an HTML element. Attributes are made up of a name and value pair. While the <strike> tag does not have any unique attributes, it will utilize all of the standard attributes until it is removed in a future version of HTML.
