HTML <b>, <i>, <tt>, <big>, <small>, <hr /> tag

Usage

The following presentational tags break the cardinal rule of XHTML - they use HTML to add styling to the content. Because of this failing, they have all been deprecated; you should either use their replacement tags or use styles to produce the same effect.

<b>

Specifies bold text. Deprecated, use <strong> instead.

<i>

Italic text. Deprecated, use <em> instead.

<tt>

Produces teletype, or mono-spaced, text. Deprecated, use styles.

<big>

Produces big text. Deprecated, use styles.

<small>

Produces small text. Deprecated, use styles.

<hr />

Inserts a horizontal line and forces a line break. Deprecated, use styles.
