HTML <ins> class Attribute

The class attribute on an <ins> tag assigns one or more classnames to the inserted text element. Classes are used to style elements. Classnames are defined in a stylesheet or in a local <style> element.

Example

#

A class attribute styling an <ins> element.

Cézanne's studio was in the beautiful city of Aix-en-Provence.

<style>
 .text-inserted {background:lavender; padding:3px; }
</style>

<p>
  Cézanne's studio was in the
  <ins class="text-inserted">beautiful</ins>
  city of Aix-en-Provence.
</p>

Using class

The class attribute assigns one or more classnames to the <ins> tag.

Multiple classnames are separated by a space.

Classes (i.e. classnames) are used for styling the ins element.

JavaScript uses classes to access one or more elements by classname.

Tip:  class is a global attribute that can be applied to any HTML element.

More Examples

<style>
.text-ins {padding: 3px; background-color:lavender;}
.bold { font-weight: bold; }
</style>

<article>
  <p>
    Cézanne's studio was in the
    <ins id="myins" class="text-ins">beautiful</ins>
    city of Aix-en-Provence.
  </p>
</article>

<br />
<button onclick="toggle();">Toggle class</button>

<script>
  let toggle = () => {
    let element = document.getElementById("myins");
    element.classList.toggle("bold");
  }
</script>

Code explanation

Three CSS classes are defined in the <style> element.

The class attribute in <ins> assigns the two of those.

Repeatedly clicking the button toggles the third class, toggling the boldness of the <ins> text.
