The above is just one of "many ways" that the <dl> element can be used. I've also used them in FAQs and other implementations where there is a direct relationship in context between one and another
here's a fragment from my latest "semantically rich" FAQ template:
<h1><acronym title="Frequently Asked Questions">FAQ</acronym></h1> <p>Everything you need to know about X:</p>
<ul> <li><a href="#what">What is X</a></li> <li><a href="#who">Who does X</a></li> <li><a href="#why">Why do X</a></li> <li><a href="#how">How to X</a></li> <li><a href="#where">Where to X</a></li> </ul>
<dl title="FAQ"> <dt id="what">What is X?</dt> <dd> <p>X is yadda yadda.</p> </dd> <dt id="who">Who does X?</dt> <dd> <p>Yadda and yadda do X.</p> </dd> <dt id="why">Why do X?</dt> <dd> <p>Do X because yadda yadda.</p> </dd> <dt id="how">How do you X?</dt> <dd> <p>You do X by yadda yadda.</p> </dd> <dt id="where">Where Do you X?</dt> <dd> <p>You can X at yadda yadda.</p> </dd> </dl>
Does your website "stutter"?
i've tried to go all validated and accessible a couple of times and overdid it. as always, a non-graphical browser such as lynx is your friend here for testing what makes sense and what is overkill. the stutter will be obvious. be sure to make the "useless" images disappear so there's no need to guess or wonder if information is missing.
You can also "associate" additional text with that linked image.
here's more on the alt attribute - "How to specify alternate text": [w3.org...] and don't forget the longdesc attribute! [w3.org...]
Ya'll are going to let me bleed out here huh? Is anyone reading? Care to join me?
i'd join you if i could keep up! aamof i haven't yet designated time for digesting your opening salvo. but i am checking back often and have this flagged for posterity. i did spend some research time to organize some threads and to give you props elsewhere [webmasterworld.com].
