There are also less well-known and used tags, withUsing which you can select words and sentences in the text. So, in order to cross out the text, it is enough to use <s> </ s>. The paired <tt> </ tt> tag will make the text monospaced. If you need to create a superscript, use <sup> </ sup>, the lower one is <sub> </ sub>.

In this case, as before, the text you need should be between the opening and closing tag. As you can see, there is nothing complicated, the main thing is to remember these codes or write them down.

  • <i> <u> <b> selected text </ u> </ b> </ i>.

In this case, the browser will get confused and will not understand what exactly you want from it.
