  • Strikethrough text by typing <del> text you want to format </del>

I have no idea what formatting is used on this forum however if it is based on bbcode, you can find a full reference at www.bbcode.org

A more straight forward reference can be found at https://www.phpbb.com/community/help/bbcode
