1. Not sure

But in html it's text here

Well, that didn't work!

I was using < s > , then < / s > without the spaces between characters. So: < s > text here < / s >

2. Again I think it depends on your operating system.

I know on my iPad I use I can't do it whilst at the DU. If you google "strike thru text" there are web sites that will let you strike thru a word and they you can copy/paste it into your text or doc.
Sometimes your native text file or note software will let you do it. Then copy/paste it into the doc.

3. Once upon a time, it was possible on DU

[s]strikethrough[/s]

[strike]strikethrough[/strike]

[strikethrough]strikethrough[/strikethrough]

Now, nada.

5. I tried the usual and they don't work here

In HTML 4, you use the [strike]foo[/strike] tags
but in HTML5, the tags [del]foo[/del] [ins]bar[/ins] are to be used

However, none of those work here in DU land.
