What is it?
These are Physical Style elements that indicate a sequence of characters that have a horizontal line striking through the middle. The HTML 2 specification had STRIKE as a proposed element which did not reach the final specification, but HTML 3 revised the syntax to S. The HTML 3.2 recommendation reverted to the earlier syntax, and HTML 4.0 includes BOTH usages. Many browsers support one or the other, or even both.
