This is just a single strikethrough. I need a double strikethrough.

After a lot of research, it seems that Microsoft Word (And I am sure other Office programs as well)
Are the only ones that can do this.

This is the code for it, from Word.

<s style="text-line-through:double;">Test</s>

BUT.
This will only Render a single line through the word.
There is something wrong with the browsers that they cannot understand it.
As when I try to save the document out of word as .html format
It removes the Double and makes it a single and states that it is not supported in
Internet Explorer 4 and Netscape
(Using Word 2007 here, and it is giving that error, so that means that it was never fixed)

Sorry for the bad news.
Good Luck

I explored a lot and found that double strikethrough is not possible in HTML, not even through CSS.

hello qwerty
That is what I stated in my post.
Word processing software seems to be the only ones that can render the double strikeout.

have a good one.

Hey Ken.
Yep, this is one of those times that "Glad I could help" does not cut it.
Wish it could have been different outcome.

Have a good one.
