Presentational Elements

Presentational elements sensu lato can be divided into two groups. "Deliberate" presentational elements (b, i, small, …) have no semantic meaning and were deliberately designed/created for presentational purposes. "Abused" presentational elements (table, blockquote, …) have a semantic meaning, but are abused because of their default appearance in browsers (the blockquote element could be used for indenting text, for example).

Deliberate

Deprecated:

Frames:

Strict but mostly presentational:

Abused
