This element is also available in our updated HTML 4 reference. Some characteristics may have changed.
|May occur in:||BODY, DIV, CENTER, BLOCKQUOTE, FORM, TH, TD and DD, LI.
DL is used to provide a list of items with associated definitions. Every item should be put in a DT, and its definition goes in the DD directly following it. This list is typically rendered without bullets of any kind.
While it is legal to have a DL with only DD or DT tags, it doesn't make much sense (what good is a definition without a term?) and you shouldn't expect it to get rendered as a normal list.
