HTML <plaintext> tag



The HTML <plaintext> tag is used to render all text in the document exactly as it was typed in, including all tags and even the document tags.

The tag <plaintext> ignores all formatting for the rest of the document, displaying all text exactly as is. It cannot be stopped, it cannot be turned off. <plaintext> is deprecated because it messes up the balance of the document tags.

Difference between HTML and XHTML:

This tag is deprecated in HTML as well as in XHTML.
