Description List

The HTML and XHTML support another list style which is called definition lists where entries are listed like in a dictionary. The definition list is the ideal way to present a list of terms, or other name/value list.

The definition list created using <dl> tag. The Description <dt> — defines the item in the list, and <dd> describes the items in the list.
