Lesson 1. Dreamweaver MX Basics > Making Definition Lists

Making Definition Lists

A definition list consists of a series of terms and their definitions. The word or term to be defined is left aligned; the definition is indented and placed on the next line. For this type of list to work, a term and its definition must be separate paragraphs—they cannot use line breaks.

1.
In introduction.html, select the text starting with “Light Source” and ending with “associated with the operation and maintenance of lighthouses.” Choose Text > List > Definition List.

The terms are now at the left margin, and their indented definitions are on succeeding lines.

2.
Save the file and preview it in the browser.

Now that you have put work into creating and formatting all these lists, it is a good time to save your document.
