In this article, we will learn how to define some text that has been inserted into a document. This can be used to show recent changes in the text content and is mostly used after the text that is to be deleted or is outdated.

Approach: We will use the <ins> element to specify text that has been inserted into the document. The browser usually adds an underline to the text present in this tag to distinguish it from the rest of the content. This element has two attributes that can be used to specify the citation and the time that the change was made.


<ins> Inserted Text </ins>

The below example illustrates the <ins> element to define the text that has been inserted into a document.

Example: In this example, we are using the above-explained approach.


<!DOCTYPE html>
    <h1 style="color: green;">
