HTML and CSS Reference
Throughout this topic you've been using elements and attributes that are all part
of the current HTML standard. So, you haven't had much opportunity to see the
phased-out elements and attributes. Most of those elements actually got phased
out in HTML 4.01, but they may still be hanging around in old web pages, so it
doesn't hurt to know a little about these legacy elements. We did some digging
and found an HTML 3.2 page that contains some elements and attributes that are
no longer part of the standard, as well as a couple of common mistakes that are
not recommended in modern HTML.

required for attributes with multiple values.
