Another type of list is a definition list.

Dido
Doomed Queen of Carthage, threatened to upset Aeneas' mission, so got what she deserved.

Start with this...

 <BODY> <DL> </DL> 
</BODY> 

Then add a definition title...

 <BODY> <DL> 
<DT>Dido </DL> </BODY> 


Dido


And a definition item.

 <BODY> <DL> <DT>Dido <DD>Doomed 
Queen of Carthage, threatened to upset Aeneas' mission, so got what she deserved. 
</DL> </BODY> 


Dido
Doomed Queen of Carthage, threatened to upset Aeneas' mission, so got what she deserved.


It helps to make the definition title bold. It's not required, but I think it looks much better that way.

 <BODY> <DL> <DT><B>Dido</B> 
<DD>Doomed Queen of Carthage, threatened to upset Aeneas' mission, so got 
what she deserved.</DL> </BODY>
