[ Referring to this example:
   <http://www.w3.org/TR/html401/struct/lists.html#idx-list-3> ]

The problem with that example, which isn't clear from the very 
misleading prose around it, is that that the only deprecated feature in 
it is the |start| attribute, which (arguably) should never have been 
deprecated in the first place.
