Html dt tag

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.

<title>HTML dt Tag</title>
<dt>Definition List</dt>
<dd>A list of terms and their definitions/descriptions.</dd>
<dd>Tutorial on JAVA Programming Language.</dd>
<dd>Tutorial on Android Operating System.</dd>
