Is it possible to do a strike-through style on text?  I found this online, but it doesn't seem to work.  Quote: To mark strikethrough text in HTML, use the <strike></strike> tag

Sometimes it's useful to have a strike through to show original text and then follow up with an editing comment and more current text.  This way someone re-reading can see there was a change/correction.  Thanks.    ~z

FWIW: <strike> was obsoleted in HTML5  -- <s> or <del> are the supported mark up in current browsers.

It's not in the forum software as historically strikethrough was not supported for all browsers. I think most browsers now support it so I can see if I can add a BB code for it.

OK, I added it.  May need to color it red to make it stand out.
