ins and del tags for Editing text

Ins Tag:

The inserted text tag designates text that has been inserted into a document.

It's usually used in collaborative works, and in conjunction with the deleted text tag.

Here's an example of usage:

Joe forgot a word but I inserted it.

That would display on a web page like this:

Joe forgot a word but I inserted it.

Del Tag:

You can use the del tag (delete) to mark text that has been deleted. Usually used in conjunction with the ins tag (insert) to show changes.

Here's an example of usage:

The teacher is Mr. Elm Mrs. Oak.

Here's how that looks on a web page:

The teacher is Mr. Elm Mrs. Oak.
