HTML Element DL
Definition and usage
<dl> element creates a definition list. The most semantic usage of this would be, hence the name, a list of definitions such as a glossary of terms etc. However, definition lists are also used for other purposes. Perhaps another good use would be where a title and description is needed, say in the case of an RSS feed or site map.
<dl> <dt>Example</dt> <dd>Something that serves to explain or illustrate a rule.</dd> <dt>Sample</dt> <dd>A part of anything presented for inspection, evidence of the quality of the whole.</dd> </dl>
- Something that serves to explain or illustrate a rule.
