HTML <ins> Tag

The ins tag is used to display the history of modifications to a document by marking up new text that has been inserted into it.

Traditionally, browsers display the content contained within the <ins> tag as emphasized text.

To demonstrate the history of modifications to a document, use the companion tag called the <del> tag to indicate material that has been deleted from a document but maintained. This tag is also generally known as the <ins> element.
