Yes it appears that even I can figure some of these things out with a little help from a free online tutorial that I found http://www.davesite.com/webstation/html/chap01.shtml I gave that a quuick look, then firgured to try the word " strike" between the <> (one each of those <>, with the word strike inside them, both before and after the part I wanted struck out) and I got a terrible result. The strike line went through every word in every one of my posts on my site. Yikes. Then I added a / just before the second word strike, and that stopped it where it belonged stopped. That one little slash made a heck of a lot of difference. If I did not explain that computer mumbo jumbo well in words that is tough because each time I try to picture it here, it just strikes out whatever I use as an example.
All the best,
