The idea here is that the tags will be dropped from the standard in the future in favor of the newer tags that do a better job. If you stop and think a moment, you can see that the older tags will never be completely removed. There are too many commercial sites that use the older tags for the tag removal to take place.

A server is a computer program that allows you to run internet documents, chat rooms, and like services that everyone seems to like so much.

Title Bar
