> A more general question: If an attribute has been deprecated, is it deprecated for all elements that it is associated with?

No, certainly not.

The name attribute is deprecated for most elements, with the exception of form input elements. The easiest way to find out if something is allowed or not is to look at a document type definition for XHTML strict.

http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/#a_dtd_XHTML-1.0-Strict

Not everything that you might expect to be deprecated really is, for instance there is still some presentational markup allowed in XHTML strict.

HTH!


Regards,
Rich
