    <command>

    Obsolete
    This feature is obsolete. Although it may still work in some browsers, its use is discouraged since it could be removed at any time. Try to avoid using it.

    Note: The command element has been removed from Gecko 24.0 in favor of the <menuitem> element. Firefox has never supported this command element, and the existing implementation of the HTMLCommandElement DOM interface has been dropped from Firefox 24.
