Because Wikia upgrade is drawing near and the <s></s> and <u></u> tags are no longer used in HTML5, I need to create CSS replacement for those. Can you help me? I need information what is needed to be added in the style sheet and later - how to use these classes in the article. Also, what about <big></big> tags? Will these be also deprecated? Thank you in advance, Final Cannon 19:50, July 15, 2012 (UTC)

HTML-5 deprecated stuff



<div style="text-decoration: underline;">Underline</div>
<div style="text-decoration: line-through;">Strike</div>
<div style="font-size: 140%;">Bigger text (140%, adjust as needed)</div>
Bigger text (140%, adjust as needed)

Use <span> instead of <div>. Eg
<span style="text-decoration: underline;">Underline</span>
which produces Underline. Matthew2602 Wall 08:05, July 20, 2012 (UTC)

JFTR, <s> is still usable, it is <strike> that's obsolete. --PedroM (talk) 12:22, July 25, 2012 (UTC)

Ok. So I should use ^this instead of big? --UltimateSupreme2212-3.png(Talk to me) 06:33, July 26, 2012 (UTC)
