Troubleshooting

Other Formatting Elements

Q1: I've occasionally seen the <TT> element in use. What does this do?
A1: The <TT> element forces any text within its opening and closing tags to appear in a "typewriter" (monospaced) font. This can be used much as the deprecated <code> element—formatting sections of text such as code listings in the monospace style. In both instances, style sheets are favored over the formatting options in HTML 4.0.

Backward Compatibility

Q1: I want to use the DIV align="center" option to center text. Won't older browsers have trouble interpreting this?
A1: The simple answer is yes, older browsers will ignore the DIV method of alignment. However, most browsers in use today can manage it. If it's imperative to have a section of text centered in as many browsers as possible, you can opt for using the <P align="center"> option, or use the rather clumsy but effective combination of either P or DIV and the deprecated center tags.
