I believe Ryan used the term correctly. referring to HTML (and other elements) that are outdated:


A deprecated element or attribute is one that has been outdated.

Deprecated elements may become obsolete in the future, but browsers should
continue to support deprecated elements for backward compatibility.*

Orace referring to program elements
â that programmers shouldn't use because a better one exists

*A program element annotated @Deprecated is one that programmers are
discouraged from using, typically because it is dangerous, or because a
better alternative exists. Compilers warn when a deprecated program element
is used or overridden in non-deprecated code.*
