The DD tag is used inside a DL definition list to provide the definition of the text in the DT tag. It may contain block elements but also plain text and markup. The end tag is optional, as it's always clear from the context where the tag's contents ends.
A typical rendering is indented, one line below the DT, but this is not guaranteed.
