This element should act the same as the <strike> element.

This HTML 3 element eventually was adopted by Netscape and Microsoft and later was incorporated into the HTML 4.01 transitional specification.

This element has been deprecated by the W3C. The strict HTML 4.01 specification does not include the s element or the strike element. It is possible to indicate strikethrough text using a style sheet.
