"Private agency" means an accredited nonpublic school, a nonprofit institution of higher education <STRIKE>eligible for tuition grants</STRIKE>, or a hospital.
In HTML 4.0, the STRIKE element is deprecated .
STRIKE is defined as "font style element", i.e. physical markup. The HTML specification does not say what the meaning should be. Typically text is striked out to indicate that a text segment belongs to the original version of a text but has been deleted later.
If you use STRIKE in your document, it is advisable to include a note about its meaning. Even if you use it for the "normal" meaning, indicating deletion, you should tell this to your readers, since some of them might view the document with browsers which do not support STRIKE at all (and display text within STRIKE elements as normal text). You might even provide a way of getting different versions of the document, with STRIKE replaced by some other method of presenting deleted text.
See general notes on text markup, which provide additional examples.
The HTML 2.0 specification does not include STRIKE but mentions it as an element which has been "deployed to some extent".
The HTML 3.2 Reference Specification warns that 'STRIKE may be phased out in favor of the more concise "S" tag from HTML 3.0'.
