I’ve recently re-discovered the definition list tag (thanks to reading Dan Cederholm’s books) and have begun using it for all sorts of situations – such as interviews and now comment lists and I’ve been wondering: should comments be coded by default in blog templates as definition lists?
A definition list seems to better describe the content’s structure than a plain list does.. but it’s not perfect either.
The W3C says:
Definition lists, created using the DL element, generally consist of a series of term/definition pairs (although definition lists may have other applications).
So… are there any reasons why definition lists aren’t being used by blogging tools?
