	[DJW:]  Actually, it is deprecated in the HTML 2.0 DTD, 
	i.e. since August 1995.

	<![ %HTML.Deprecated [
	        <!ENTITY % preformatted "PRE | XMP | LISTING">
	]]>

	<!ENTITY % preformatted "PRE">

[DJW:]  It's definition was non-SGML conforming, as noted in
both the 2.0 and 3.2 DTD - it required </xmp> not just </:

	<!ENTITY % literal "CDATA"
	        -- historical, non-conforming parsing mode where
	           the only markup signal is the end tag
	           in full
	        -->
