## LaTeX strikeout font example - How to use a strikeout/strikethrough font

A LaTeX strikeout font example: It was hard to find out how to use a strikethrough font using LaTeX, and I don't want to lose it, so here's a simple example.

%
% include the "ulem" package in the header
%
\usepackage{ulem}

%
% use the "sout" tag to "strike through" text
%
\sout{Bill Clinton} G.W. Bush is the pres.

Run through the latex2html converter, this produces output text like this:

## LaTeX strikeout tag (Thu, May 13, 2004)

Some of my cohorts in development are using the Hibernate object/relational mapping software with decent success.

And although this must seem trivial to most people, last night I found the LaTeX "strikethrough" (strikeout) capability I've been looking for. Just use the "sout" tag in the "ulem" package. I don't know why that had to be so hard to find (arghhh).
