3.9.2. Using Editorial Markup
The uses of <ins> and <del> are obvious to anyone who has used a "boil-
erplate" document or form or has collaborated with others in the pre-
paration of a document.
For example, law firms typically have a collection of online legal docu-
ments that are specially completed for each client. Law clerks usually
do the "fill in," and the final document gets reviewed by a lawyer. To
highlight those changes in the document so that they are readily evid-
ent to the reviewer, you might use the <ins> tag to indicate added text
and the <del> tag to mark the text that was replaced. Optionally, use
the cite and datetime attributes to indicate why and when the changes
were made.
For example, the clerk might fill in a boilerplate document with the law
firm's and representative's names, indicating the time and source for
the change:
The party of the first part, as represented by
<ins datetime=2002-06-22T08:30Z
Thomas Muller of Muller and Duller
<del>[insert representation here]</del>
The editorial markup tags could also be used by editing tools to denote
how documents were modified as authors make changes over a period
