The proper way to mark up changes to an HTML document, when you wish to retain the old content while displaying the new.

I <del>hate</del> <ins>LOVE</ins> my new iPod nano.

The browser defaults are usually a strikeout/cross-through of del, and an underline for ins.

Posting Code

We highly encourage you to post problematic HTML/CSS/JavaScript over on CodePen and include the link in your post. It's much easier to see, understand, and help with when you do that.

Markdown is supported, so you can write inline code like `<div>this</div>` or multiline blocks of code in in triple backtick fences like this:

```
<script>
  function example() {
    element.innerHTML = "<div>code</div>";
  }
</script>
```
