Right, it's also gone in html5.

Oh, I get it now.

The thing is that now, with style sheets, the idea is to do the
opposite: the html should be all about the content's hierarchy. It's
the css that has the role of determining how it will look when

So <code> only means "this is code", which happens to be assigned the
default of rendering in monospace by browsers.

<kbd> is still valid html5 (because it answers "what is this?") but
<tt> is not ("show this in monospace"--that should be on a style

All these things have the best of intentions, but then the web is full
of pages loaded with javascript where all this purity is trashed. :P
