The awesome but underused <dl> tag


The description list tags, <dl>, <dt>, and <dd>, are some of the least used HTML tags but some of the most useful. As Dorper uses these tags frequently, I have many examples of the uses of these tags.

Key Value List

This usage of the description list tags can be seen on the 68008 calculator specs list:

<dl>

  <dd>MC68008P8 @ 8 MHz</dd>
  <dt>RAM</dt>
  <dd>128KiB</dd>
  <dt>ROM</dt>
  <dd>512KiB</dd>
  <dt>Serial</dt>
  <dd>MC6850 ACIA</dd>
