Definition and Usage

Compatibility Notes

The compact attribute of the del element was deprecated in HTML 4.01 and is not supported in XHTML 1.0 Strict DTD.
Use CSS instead.
There is no CSS property that does the exact same thing that the compact attribute was supposed to do. However, the line-height property could be a suitable replacement.
CSS syntax: <dir style="line-height: 100%">


<dir compact="compact">
