- The use of these block-like elements is not recommended. They were
marked as deprecated/"obsolete" in the HTML 2.0, 3.0 and
3.2 versions and do not appear in HTML 4.0 and beyond at all. Browsers
still implement support for these elements for compatibility with existing
documents and it is unlikely that this support will ever actually be
withdrawn from existing browsers in the future.

- These elements allow content to be displayed "as-is" in the
document by stopping regular HTML parsing until the closing element
is found. The PRE element is now the
recommended replacement for these elements.
