HTML Strike Tag <strike> is used when we want to render a strikethrough text on a browser.
Any text within the HTML Strike tag <strike> will be rendered as strikethrough, a strikethrough text is the one in which there is a cut like line passing through the text.
HTML Strike tag is a closed tag and needs a closing HTML Strike tag </strike>
- Strike Tag is not supported in HTML 5, we have to use the HTML 5 del tag <del> instead.
- Also the strike tag is deprecated in HTML 4.0.1.
Syntax of HTML Strike Tag
<strike> Some text here </strike>
Example of HTML Strike Tag
|HTML Strike Tag Code||Output|
<p> <strike>I have a black dog. </strike></p> <p> Now I have a new fawn dog </p>
|I have a black dog. Now I have a new fawn dog|
In the above HTML Strike Tag output we can see that the text “I have a black dog” is being rendered as cut or strikethrough because we have wrapped it within the HTML Strike tag.
