HTMLWeb DevelopmentFront End Technology

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.

## Example

You can try to run the following code to define the start of a term in a definition list using the <dt> tag −

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<title>HTML dt Tag</title>
</html>
