Revision Content

{{ Obsolete_header() }}

Summary

The HTML Strikethrough Element (<strike>) renders text with a strike-through, or a line through it.

Usage Note: As all purely styling element, {{ HTMLElement("strike") }} has been deprecated in HTML 4 and XHTML 1, and obsoleted in HTML5. If semantically appropriated, i.e. if it represents deleted content, use the {{ HTMLElement("del") }} instead; in all other cases use a {{ HTMLElement("span") }} element and style it with the CSS {{ cssxref("text-decoration") }} property, with the line-through value.

Attributes

This element has no other attributes than the global attributes, common to all elements.

DOM interface

This element implements the HTMLElement interface.

Implementation note: up to Gecko 1.9.2 inclusive, Firefox implements the HTMLSpanElement interface for this element.

Example

<strike>Today's Special: Salmon</strike> SOLD OUT<br />
<span style="text-decoration:line-through;">Today's Special: Salmon</span> SOLD OUT

Result

Today's Special: Salmon SOLD OUT
Today's Special: Salmon SOLD OUT

See Also

  • The {{ HTMLElement("s") }} element, alter ego of the {{ HTMLElement("strike") }} element and, like it, obsolete.
  • The {{ HTMLElement("del") }} element to be used instead if the data has been deleted.
  • The CSS {{ cssxref("text-decoration") }} property to be used to achieve the former visual aspect of the {{ HTMLElement("strike") }} element.
