The deleted text is rendered as strike-through text by the web browsers although this property can be changed using CSS text-decoration property. The <del> tag requires a starting and ending tag.

Attributes: The <del> tag contains two attributes which are listed below: 

  • cite: It is used to specify the URL of the document or message which denotes the reason for deleting the text.
