Might the following also be added to the Legacy module?

Although I do see that it has not included all deprecated 
elements/attributes but only the most useful ones, it was only the 
following attributes (besides <html version=>) as far as I could tell 
(by searching for all references to deprecated) which had not been 
included, and these seem fairly useful:

applet: hspace, vspace, align
object: hspace, vspace, border, align

Other than that, (besides applet which has its own module), all 
deprecated elements also seem to have been already included (besides 
those obsoleted which had only been in earlier versions like xmp, 
plaintext, and listing).

Thus, if you would add "applet" and "object" attributes above, you might 
make a note that it is only <html version> which is not included.

On an unrelated note, while the HTML 4.01 specs state that "align" has 
been deprecated (at 
http://www.w3.org/TR/html401/present/graphics.html#h-15.1.2 ), it is 
still a part of many of the XHTML 1.1 modules and is not removed from 
them in the Strict DTD. Also the specs do not mention "char" and how 
some such as <caption> allow "top", etc.

None of this is too big of a deal, but I thought I'd mention it.

thank you,
Brett Zamir
