## LaTeX strikethrough

I wanted to write something crossed out in a LaTeX document. Could not find the way to do this in the obvious places. But a Yahoo! search produced the answer:

\usepackage{ulem}

anywhere in the preamble  (before \begin{document}). Then

\sout{word}

produces

word

This works in slides as well, also on mathematical symbols. But this package makes \em act as an underline, and \it produces what \sl normally would.
