Currently I am in the process of converting some of the code of one of my webapp's HTML over to HTML5, from XHTML1.

Right now to signify links where the target is unavailable but eventually will be implemented, I am using strikeouts.

However, it appears that <s> has been deprecated in HTML5.

I have had a look, and it appears the closest replacement is <del>. However, it appears that <del> is for things that have been removed, which would not match the intention of my current usage.

Will I need to use <del> or are there alternatives?
