7.3. Deprecated Elements

As I stated earlier, style sheets obviate the need for a number of tags that were commonly used for basic formatting tasks. Those tags are now deprecated, but they will continue to be supported in browsers for generations to come. Obviously, any attributes associated with these elements are also deprecated, but not necessarily in all other active elements. Table 7.2 shows all the elements that are deprecated in the HTML 4.0 specification.
