HTML <ins> Tag


The HTML <ins> tag is used to mark up text that has been inserted into a document or web page. It is typically displayed as underlined text, indicating that this content is new or added compared to the original version of the document. The <ins> tag is often paired with the <del> tag, which represents deleted or removed text and is typically displayed with a strikethrough. Together, these tags can be used to show the differences between different versions of a document or to highlight recent edits or updates in web content.
