HTML <strike> Tag

This tag is deprecated in HTML 4.01, use the <del> tag instead.

Description

The <strike> HTML element is used for rendering a strike (or line) through the middle of the text. The function is the same as <strike>, but <s> is supported by more browsers. However, since <strike> is a deprecated element, we should use the css text-decoration property instead.
