The <hgroup> element has been removed from the HTML5 (W3C) specification, but it still is in the WHATWG version of HTML. It is partially implemented in most browsers, though, so is unlikely to go away.
However, given that a key purpose of the <hgroup> element is to affect how headings are displayed by the outline algorithm defined in the HTML specification — but the HTML outline algorithm is not implemented in any browsers — then the <hgroup> semantics are in practice only theoretical.

Usually, when I get to see older movies in movie channels these days, many things feels funny. It's the same movies, that I used to be mad about watching over and over but now I'll be able to see a lot of flaws in scripts, graphics, actions. I just giggle at them thinking, "how on earth we could afford to watch it even once?".
Even many of the horror movies, that used to thrill like Evil-Dead & other ones like Godzila-Vs-King Monster, the old King-Kong, Jaws-1 all feels so silly and absurd. The rubber fish, yuk.
I happened to see Predator-I couple of days back. I can't believe it's made in 1987. It felt like a brand new movie. The concept, the graphics, and the whole set looked very practical. It's totally future-proof. I think it will last for even more decades.

It looks better than it would now. Now the creature would be a dude in a green suit with a computer animation overlay. All the other actors would be responding to a dude in a green suit rather than a wonderfully constructed, animatronically-enhanced, costume.

I tend to agree, however Jaws was creepy (true rubber shark) but the shark puppet didn't work for most of the film and there was a lot of working around. Also the original King-Kong should be viewed as the first use of practical special effects for the time.
Sometimes even low budget movies have surprisingly effective practical effects. How about the robots Huey, Dewey and Louie from Silent Running (1972)? They are also R2D2's grandpas, as George Lucas later borrowed the idea. Then again, what idea did he not borrow somewhere?
From when I was very very young, one of my favorite movies was the Japanese Sci-Fi Flik (a genre unto itself!) "The Mysterians". I basically remembered the scenarios, but with streaming video, I got to see it again.
It really is, as you say, funny. Trite dialog, palely disguised nationalistic comments) an portrayals of non-Japanese, and . . . the robot.
A giant ray-spewing robot - complete with a rather large conical nose that servers no purpose. Painted light-bulbs on the end-game human response to the invaders.
This before the total decline of their industry as evidenced by what they made of Godzilla.
