Deprecated HTML Tags Test

Check if your webpage is using old, deprecated HTML tags. These tags will eventually lose browser support and your web pages may render incorrectly as browsers drop support for these tags.




How do I fix it?

In order to pass this test you must identify into your code all deprecated HTML tags listed above and replace them with proper tags or CSS rules. Some examples are given below:

  • for <applet> tag, the equivalent tag is <object>
  • for <center> tag, the alternative CSS property is text-align
  • for <font> tag, the alternative CSS properties are font-family and font-size
  • for <s>, <strike> and <u> tags, the alternative CSS property is text-decoration
