Is it possible to strike out text on a jsp page, on the click of a button?

Eg: I have some text "ABC ABC .." on a jsp page. I have a button - Strike out. On click of this button, I want the text "ABC ABC.." to be striked out. Is this possible using javascript?

Please help.

A JSP is just an HTML page once it gets to the browser, so the JSP-ness of the page is moot.

In the button click event, you can change the CSS style of any element on the page under script control.

That should be enough information to get you started.
