It is still supported and delivered but only on IBM i, all the other platforms have dropped it. It is not being updated nor enhanced and will eventually be removed from the system. It is not a preferred solution for anything new. It's there because IBM made the promise they would not intentionally break applications.

All that said, it is really a cool product, just not in today's marketplace.

%define HTML = {<html><body><table>
