HTML: Cross out a Word

Question by Guest | 2018-01-17 at 18:46

I would like to  strike through a word in an HTML document. Just as you can do it in a program like Word as formatting, for example.

Is there a corresponding possibility in HTML to format a word or even an entire sentence accordingly?

There are two ways to cross out a word, sentence, or text with HTML. Here are two examples for you:

This <strike>word</strike> is crossed out.

With the HTML tag strike you cross out the enclosing text. It works the same way as <strong> ... </strong> for getting a text bold.

<p style="text-decoration: line-through">
This paragraph is crossed out.

In addition to the strike tag, you can also work with CSS. If the CSS property text-decoration is set to line-through, the corresponding text will be crossed out. In our example we crossed out a p-paragraph with CSS inline style. Of course, any other element can also be assigned this CSS property to.
