I updated to the SDK Version 24 and now
Html.fromHtml(String) on all API levels, or,
Html.fromHtml(String) on API Level 23 and older devices, and
Html.fromHtml(String, int) on API Level 24+ devices, using
Build.VERSION.SDK_INT to find out the API level of the device that you are running on
In this case, "deprecated" is a hint to go look for the two-parameter method, but the one-parameter method still works and (in all likelihood) will do so for quite some time.
