How Do I Create A Definition List?


Definition lists are used for displaying terms and there definitions. For example a glossary or dictionary.

How to do it


First place a <DL> at the beginning of your list.

Next place a <DT> in front of every term in your list.

Then place a <DD> in front of every definition in your list.

Finally place an ending </DL> at the end of your list.

        Example

I want to show definitions of terms on my web page

<DL>
<DT>HTML

<DT>HTTP
