HOW TO USE HTML DESCRIPTION LIST

1) THE BASICS

An HTML description list is used to describe a list of terms.

3 elements are invovled: <dl> The description list itself. <dt> Term being described. <dd> Description of the term.

2) SIMPLE EXAMPLE

<dl>   <!-- TERM -->   <dt>Homo Sapien</dt>     <!-- DESCRIPTION -->   <dd>     The clever way of saying "human".   </dd>   <dd>     The scientific name of "human".   </dd> </dl>

3) WRONG USAGE

DESCRIPTION LISTS SHOULD BE USED TO DESCRIBE TERMS. NOT FOR A GENERIC LIST OF ITEMS.   <h1>TO DO LIST</h1> <dl>   <dt>Feed Doge</dt>   <dd>Hungry Doge gets grumpy.</dd>   <dt>Sweep Floor</dt>   <dd>Angry Wife if not swept.</dd> </dl>
