This class is an alternative to HtmlTextWriter. It converts HTML 4.0 style attributes into the equivalent tags and attributes compatible with HTML 3.2. It standardizes the propagation of attributes, like colors and fonts, using HTML tables, which can vary in behavior in earlier browsers. The ASP.NET Web Forms automatically uses this class for HTML 3.2 and earlier browsers by checking the TagWriter property of the HttpBrowserCapabilities class. Normally, you do not need to instantiate this class explicitly.
