HTML - <dd> Tag



The HTML <dd> tag is used for specifying a definition description in a definition list.

A definition list is similar to other lists but in a definition list, each list item contains two entries; a term and a description.


<!DOCTYPE html>

      <title>HTML dd Tag</title>

         <dt>Definition List</dt>
         <dd>A list of terms and their definitions/descriptions.</dd>
         <dd>An HTML tutorial.</dd>
         <dd>An PHP tutorial.</dd>
