A description list represents an association list consisting of zero or more name-value groups. It maintains the many-to-many relationship between names and values (ex: terms and definitions, metadata topics and values, questions and answers, or any other groups of name-value data).
The <dl> element encloses a list of groups of terms (specified using the <dt> element) and descriptions (provided by <dd> elements). Common uses for this element are to implement a glossary or to display metadata (a list of key-value pairs).
Please check back again for working examples.
Every list should have a pairing (name-value).
Lists should not be nested within each other.
Description lists themselves are not interactive, but may contain nested interactive elements (such as links).
A description list requires no ARIA.
