3.9. Editorial Markup

HTML 4.0 introduced two new tags that can help groups of authors collaborate in the development of documents and maintain some semblance of editorial and version control. The insert (<ins>) and delete (<del>) tags let you designate portions of your document's body as either new or added content, or designate old stuff that should be replaced. And with special attributes, you may indicate when you made the change (datetime) and a reference to a document that may explain the change (cite).

3.9.1. The <ins> and <del> Tags

The <ins> and <del> tags let authors set off portions of body contents they intend to add to or delete from the current version of their document. HTML 4/XHTML-compliant browsers display the contents of the <ins> or <del> tags in some special way so readers can quickly scan the document for the changes.
