For to show that an event was cancelled, I put <del> and </del> around

text stricken through, but Lynx s "[DEL:" and ":DEL]" were right above
the heading.  I believ that element DEL (and INS) is good at both the
level of DIV and of SPAN, in contrast to most elements.  What is up?

div tag is mostly for css aware user agents, no? says:
User agents should render inserted and deleted text in ways that make
   the change obvious.

So <del></del> is to keep track of document changes, with attributes providing detail if present, but I don't see how you can get a strike through or any obvious rendering effect with lynx.

using this

<h1>To show <del title="cancelled">an event </del>was cancelled,</h1>

encloses the text "an event" in the :DEL construct adding some clarity.
