The Most Often Forgotten Definition List

I recently found an article by Russ Weakley and the guys and Max Design about the often under use or misunderstanding of what HTML Definition Lists are all about.

Definition Lists are to be used wherever there is a name/value pair or wherever you have a thing and then have some more text that you use to describe it with.

W3C Specification Says -
Another application of DL, for example, is for marking up dialogues, with each DT naming a speaker, and each DD containing his or her words.
http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml2/mod-list.html#edef_list_dt
I know with the jobs that I work on, there are a lot of times where it would have been more appropriate to use a definition list. We will often use a unordered list with line breaks, which isn't a good idea.

So next time to remember the possibility of using a definition list.

Blogger Sony Ericsson Takes Over Title said...

This site is so nice. Really i've been checkit for a wile. Here's some info about the Sony Ericsson tennis tournament history. If you like to visit my page it will be a pleasure. Or if know some one that likes to know about this, givethem this link. Will be nice to had some users like you with sites as good as yours. On August 29, 2006 Sony Ericsson Mobile Communications announced the signing of a four year contract worth $20 million to become the title sponsor of the Sony Ericsson Open. The Sony Ericsson Open is currently the largest tournament in the world with Title Sponsorship. When Butch Buchholz established the event in 1985, it marked the first time in 56 years that a new two-week tournament featuring men and women was launched. Located in Delray Beach (Laver’s International Tennis Center) in 1985 and Boca Raton (Boca West) in 1986, the tournament found a permanent home in 1987 on Miami’s Key Biscayne. In 1994, Miami-Dade County christened the Tennis Center at Crandon Park, a 30-acre expanse that is transformed each year from a public tennis facility into a full-fledged festival for the Sony Ericsson Open. The Sony Ericsson Open was awarded “Tournament of the Year” by the ATP for five consecutive years and seven of the last eight years and in 2004 by the Sony Ericsson WTA Tour and is considered one of the most prestigious titles in professional tennis. In 1999, the tournament was purchased by IMG.
The only combined 12-day Tennis Masters Series event on the ATP and Sony Ericsson WTA Tour calendar, the Sony Ericsson Open features the world's top-ranked pros - 96 men and 96 women in singles competition, and 32 men's teams and 32 women's teams in doubles action. The men’s final is a best 3-out-of-5 sets with every other match in both men’s and women’s singles and doubles a best 2-out-of-3.We specialize in hard to find or sold-out sports tickets, concert tickets and theatertickets for sporting and entertainment events worldwide. We provide great service whether you want to buy tickets or sell ticket. We buy and sell sports tickets, concert tickets and theater tickets on the secondary market such as Sony-Ericsson tennis tickets, US Open and othertennis open event tickets. We are not affiliated with or sponsored by any of the teams, performers, artists, box offices, venues or organizations for which we are providers. Trademarks and trade names have been used within this web site for descriptive purposes only. If you would like to buy tickets from the official distribution outlets, venues or organization box offices, please inquire directly with them.
