Access: [11.2.1.10]: replace deprecated html <u> (Priority 2)

Cause:

Replace deprecated HTML elements and attributes to ensure web pages remain compliant with the most current browser technologies. The <u> element (which renders underlined text) has been deprecated. Use Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) to apply font effects to text.

Example:

Bad
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-html40/loose.dtd">
<html lang="en">
<head>
<title>aert1.0/11.2.1</title>
</head>
<body>

<h1><u>Underlined Heading</u></h1>

</body>
</html>

Solution:

Good
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-html40/loose.dtd">
<html lang="en">
<head>
<title>aert1.0/11.2.1</title>
   <style type="text/css">
      h1 { text-decoration: underline; }
   </style>
</head>
<body>

<h1>Underlined Heading</h1>

</body>
</html>
