Obsolete Features

This section describes elements that are no longer part of HTML. Client implementors should implement these obsolete elements for compatibility with previous versions of the HTML specification.

Comment Element

The Comment element is used to delimit unneeded text and comments. The Comment element has been introduced in some HTML applications but should be replaced by the SGML comment feature in new HTML interpreters (see Section 2.2.5).

Highlighted Phrase Element


The Highlighted Phrase element should be ignored if not implemented. This element has been replaced by more meaningful elements (see Section 8).

Example of use:

<HP1>first highlighted phrase</HP1>non-
highlighted text<HP2>second highlighted phrase</HP2> etc.

Plain Text Element


The Plain Text element is used to terminates the HTML entity and to indicate that what follows is not SGML which does not require parsing. Instead, an old HTTP convention specified that what followed was an ASCII (MIME "text/plain") body. Its presence is an optimization. There is no closing tag.

Example of use:

0001 This is line one of a long listing
0002 file from <ANY@HOST.INC.COM> which is sent

Example and Listing Elements

<XMP> ... </XMP> and <LISTING> ... </LISTING>

The Example and Listing elements have been replaced by the Preformatted Text element (Section 10.2).

These styles allow text of fixed-width characters to be embedded absolutely as is into the document. The syntax is:



<XMP> ... </XMP>

The text between these tags is typically rendered in a monospaced font so that any formatting done by character spacing on successive lines will be maintained.

Between the opening and closing tags:

The Listing element is rendered so that at least 132 characters fit on a line. The Example element is rendered to that at least 80 characters fit on a line but is otherwise identical to the Listing element.

Proposed Features

This section describes proposed HTML elements and entities that are not currently supported under HTML Levels 0, 1, or 2@@, but may be supported in the future.

Additional Character Entities

To indicate special characters, HTML uses entity or numeric representations. Additional character presentations are proposed:

Non-breaking space           &nbsp;
Soft-hyphen            &shy;
Registered               &reg;
Copyright                  &copy;

Defining Instance Element

<DFN> ... </DFN>

The Defining Instance element indicates the defining instance of a term. The typical rendering is bold or bold italic. This element is not widely supported.

Strike Element


The Strike element is proposed to indicate strikethrough, a font style in which a horizontal line appears through characters. This element is not widely supported.

Underline Element

<U> ... </U>

The Underline element is proposed to indicate that the text should be rendered as underlined. This proposed tag is not supported by all HTML interpreters.

Example of use:

The text <U>shown here</U> is rendered in the 
document as underlined.
