I guess you could use <s> or <strike> if you want the line through the text rather than wanting the line to break around the text. You could even use a combination of strike and NBSP but it's messy. Note that <strike> is deprecated in HTML 4 in favour of the CSS text-decoration: line-through style.
Eric's method is cleanest as it uses HTML 4 and CSS and no table for layout.

But, according to Eric's method, the line is not through the text. The line breaks around the text.

If you want the line through the text then use <strike> with HTML 3.2 or style="text-decoration: line-through;" with HTML 4 or XHTML.
