    How do I get strikethrough text in a message? The usual code, sample, does not seem to work.

    Thanks for the help!

    Let me <s>try</s> do it.

    You have to use the html brackets that are like the greater than and less than symbols, if you know what I mean.

    well, I tried...

    I realize that it is going to be hard to post without vBulletin changing things, but a little more guidance would be helpful.

    Tanks! :thumb

    I tried using the test thread to test HTML tags, but for some reason my browser isn't refreshing to show my test post (damn work forcing me to use IE).

    anyway, trying to change the price on a for sale ad, and wanted to strike through the old price. tried using and and and tags, but neither seem to work.

    what do i need to do?
