## Output

In the above example, we have set the <dl> to set the description list −

<dl>
<dt>Football</dt>
<dd>It is played by 250 million players in over 200 countries.</dd>
<dt>Cricket</dt>
<dd>It is a bat-and-ball game played between two teams of eleven players on a field.</dd>
<dt>Hockey</dt>
<dd>There are many types of hockey such as bandy, field hockey, and ice hockey.</dd>
<dt>Golf</dt>
<dd>It is a club-and-ball sport in which players use various clubs to hit balls into a series of holes on a course in as few strokes as possible.</dd>
</dl>

The <dt> element above defines a term in the definition list, whereas the <dd> also defines a term, but you can add links, images, line breaks inside the <dd>.
