HTML dl tag


Description:

The HTML dl tag inserts a definitions list, composed by two elements: terms (HTML dt element) and descriptions (HTML dd element). In definition lists, terms can be associated to one or more descriptions and viceversa. The way terms and descriptions are associated is arbitrary and left to the author's consideration.

Differences Between HTML 4.01 and HTML5:

In HTML 4.01, the <dl> tag defines a definition list.

In HTML 5, the <dl> tag defines a description list.

Difference between HTML and XHTML:

NONE

Example:

Code

<dl>

<dt>Definition List</dt>

<dd>A list of terms and their definitions/descriptions.</dd>

<dt>HTML</dt>

<dd>An HTML tutorial.</dd>

<dt>PHP</dt>

<dd>An PHP tutorial.</dd>

</dl>
