<strike> Strike Through

Used to mark text that should appear with a line through it so as to appear struck out.


Strike-through emphasis is typically used only in quoted material.
<strike> as a Toggle Switch
The @toggle attribute can control the behavior of <strike>. When the value of @toggle is set to “no”, the emphasized text remains struck-through, no matter what the surrounding text does. This is the typical behavior wanted for strike-through.
Toggle is rarely set to “yes” for <strike>. However, if the value of @toggle were to be set to “yes”, and if the surrounding text were set to be struck-through, the text within the <strike> element would change to another emphasis style, so that the text would still be typographically distinct from its surroundings.
