    Remember the rules of written English:

    - Start every sentence with a capital letter.
    - End every sentence with a single appropriate punctuation mark.

    Re: [STRIKE]

    It's code for the software which runs this forum. It's supposed to use a font that makes the letters appear like they have a line through them, like someone crossed them out.

    Re: [STRIKE]

    I have gone back to that thread and fixed mine. Something has happened to the toolbar and the "strikethrough" option has vanished on the basic editing tool, so I have been putting the code in manually but I made a typo. I have edited billmcd's post too - he had made a similar typo.

    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    It's meant to be talking to the software and not displayed, but if you hit the wrong key, it will be displayed.
