In that case, can we please have an option to use HTML strike-through to
show changes. I do not like Microsoft, but MS-Word displays differences
using strike-through, and having used it, I find it easier to read than any
other difference displaying technique I have used (e.g. tkdiff). It may be
unfamiliar initially, but proves its value with use. If you are unfortunate
enough to have access to MS-Word, try turning on change-tracking
(Tools->Track Changes->Highlight Changes), make changes and marvel. For an
example of how to do strike-through in HTML, see
http://www.faqs.org/docs/htmltut/_STRIKE.html . Note that MS-Word uses
colouring in conjunction with strike-through, which is more effective than
strike-through alone.

This has been on my revision-control wish-list for several years.
