I have written an internal Procedure template for a tech writing house using
the word DEPRECATED to describe a style that is no longer to be used.
I would value your opinions..
Use the word depreciated, as it is in common use, with a short explanation following first use and in the glossary. No other term means the same thing in the 'field' where it is used. You might mention that the term is common in programming and development.
