I will create a bug and assign it to myself since I'm trying to get the 
HTML tutorials/concepts cleaned up I can work on a start for this in the 
process.

A new page for the obsolete features is exactly what I was thinking 
about but, adding the modern equivalent is a great idea I hadn't thought 
to do.

Thanks,
