<u></u>

Renders text underlined.

When something is important enough, you <u>underline</u> it.

When something is important enough you underline it.

This is another one of those tags that "proper typography" says that you shouldn't use. In the days of typewriters, typists would underline text that would normally be rendered italicized. It was really just a poor man's italics. So really, underlining means italics. Use <i> instead.

<wbr>

Specifies where a line break can occur in a line of <nobr> text. This will not insert a line break. Use <br> for that. Instead it merely states where a line break CAN occur if it is needed. If the browser feels that a line break doesn't need to occur where a <wbr> tag has been placed, then it won't break the line there.

<nobr>This sentence will not wrap because of the use of the nobr tag. I can specify where a break can occur by using wbr here.<wbr>It depends on your display mode whether it broke the sentence or not.</nobr>

<xmp></xmp>

Specifies that the included text and code is to be displayed literally. using this tag, you can write normal HTML code and it will be displayed "as is".

<xmp>
<!-- Normally, this text wouldn't be displayed, but this is an exception -->
</xmp>

<!-- Normally, this text wouldn't be displayed, but this is an exception -->

NOTE: Only the current browsers support this tag. Some pretty whacked-out looking pages may result for older browsers. Basically, it's safer to just use <code> instead.
