What Are "del" and "ins" Tags/Elements?

"del" and "ins" elements are inline elements that you can use to specify text to be treated as deleted text and inserted text respectively. Here are basic rules about "del" and "ins" elements:

  • "del" and "ins" elements are inline elements.
  • "del" and "ins" elements can not be used at block level.
  • Contents of "del" elements will be displayed with a strike through line.
  • Contents of "ins" elements will be displayed with an underscore line.

Here is a good tutorial example of "del" and "ins" elements:

<?xml version="1.0" ?>
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN"
  <title>DEL and INS Elements</title>
  <p>The <del>cat</del><ins>dog</ins> couldn't
   find <del>it's</del><ins>its</ins> bone.</p>
