Ins Tag

The HTML <ins> tag is used to indicate newly inserted text.

<del> tag is used to markup deleted text.

Browsers will normally strike a line through deleted text and underline inserted text.

Note : <ins> tag is used together with <del> to markup updates and modifications in a document.

Difference between <ins> tag and <u> tag

The <ins> tags means content inserted after it was first published. The <u> tag is simply for underlining and has no meaning.

Browser Support

It is supported in all major browsers.


   Attribute      Value                      Description
      cite       URL Defines a URL to another document which explains why the text was deleted.
     datetime YYYYMMDD HH:MM:SS Defines the date and time the text was deleted.

 Example of <ins> tag in HTML5

<!DOCTYPE html>


<html lang="en" xmlns="">


    <meta charset="utf-8" />

    <title>ins tag</title>
