HTML - <dt> Tag



The HTML <dt> tag is used to define the start of a term 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 dt Tag</title>

         <dt>Definition List</dt>
         <dd>A list of terms and their definitions/descriptions.</dd>
         <dd>Tutorial on JAVA Programming Language.</dd>
         <dd>Tutorial on Android Operating System.</dd>
