HTML dd: Main Tips

  • The HTML <dd> element attaches a definition to a term added with the <dt> element.
  • A combination of <dd>, <dt>, <dl> creates a description or definition list.
  • You can put links, images, paragraphs, lists and other elements between <dd> tags.

Use of dd

The HTML <dd> tag adds a definition to a term in a description list.

Example
<dl>
  <dt>Cat</dt>
  <dd>Not the best pet to have</dd>
  <dt>Llama</dt>
  <dd>Definitely the best pet to have</dd>
</dl>

nowrap

Besides the global attributes the HTML <dd> tag accepts, it can also have the nowrap attribute set. The default value of this attribute is no. If set to yes, the definition will not wrap.
