Correction marks highlight changes while working on a draft. Lately, strike-through has also become a hip visual style.

To visually record important changes in our text, we can expressively cancel a part of the previous version by marking it strike-through. The opposite action is to mark a part as inserted later.

The extension strike-through has been introduced by GitHub, because a hell of a lot collaborative work is going on there. On a finalized page it tends to look unprofessional if it’s not some kind of change-log.


Strike-through is applied by surrounding text with two swung dashes on every side like ~~deletion~~. There is no Markdown syntax for an insertion available in Hugo (yet), but you can use the replacement code with the plus sign like {‍+insertion} .
