From Fancyclopedia 2, ca. 1959
Material struck out with virgules so that, tho ostensibly a typo, it remains legible (as it was intended to be). This h/e/r/e/ is a specimen, /y/o/u/-/a/l/l/.

This isn't exactly right — in Fancy 2, the slashes overlay the letters they are cancelling out — an effect we can't figure out how to make appear here or on most modern wordprocesssing software.

Besides the approach used above, the legal strikeout font this sort of thing is a reasonable way to indicate semi-cancellation. We use both quite indiscriminately in Fancy 3. The key thing is to pretend to hide the supposedly unwanted text.
