HTML tags | ins-del

They are used to indicate text that has been inserted or removed from a document.

Both have two attributes: cite to specify a URL explaining the reason for insertion/deletion and datetime indicating the date the modification occurred (in YYYY-MM-DDThh:mm:ssTZD format).

As it is common for screen reader users to disable the advertisement of content that creates a lot of verbosity, it is advisable not to abuse the use of these elements and to use them only when not knowing that a content has been modified could affect their understanding.

  • Type: inline / inline
  • Self-closing: No / No
  • Semantic value: No / No
