Question Placing A 'slash' Though Words
If this is the wrong place to post this question, I apologize.

I am trying to find out how a slash can be placed through a word or words, I have seen this done on some sites and also on some blogs.

I tried to copy and paste an example, to show what I am talking about, but when posting the SLASH does not appear.

Anybody know how to place the slash through words?

Hi Anthony,
It sounds like you're talking about strikethrough. If you're editing in html, the tag is <s>words you want to strikethrough</s>. If you're editing in Frontpage, you can highlight the text and go to Format/Font and check the box for Strikethrough. If you're editing in Dreamweaver, you can highlight the text and go to Text/Style and choose Strikethrough. Hope that helps.

Thank you very much.

Yes, STRIKETHROUGH is exactly what I am talking about.

After reading your post, would I be correct in assuming that it would not be possible for one to use this 'strikethrough' procedure in an everyday, normal email?

You may be able to use it. What program are you using for email? (Outlook, Outlook Express, etc).

I haven't used AOL in a few years so I'm not sure if there's a way to do it from within the program itself. If I remember correctly though, you can compose your email in a program like Word or Word Perfect, strikethrough the text, and then copy and paste it into your AOL email. I think AOL will keep the strikethrough from the Word processing program.

Thank you very much. Problem solved and case closed.

I tried to copy and paste a reply in here with a word that had been 'struck', but the 'strike' does not appear. It does show up in my email though and that was my main goal.

Take care,
Anthony
