    Creating a Glossary Page

    I am creating a glossary page for my web site. The glossary table will consist of two columns (1. Term, 2. Definition) and hundreds of rows. Can I create this table using CSS or should I use html tables (table row and table data)?

    Thank you,

    Steve

    You should create your HTML by using definition lists . Simple, semantic, and exactly the HTML element you should be using, from your description .

    Definition lists have a very clean look to them.

    Thank you for your reply, Ryan!

    I coded for years without trying definition lists. Now I wouldn't leave home without them.

    Ryan and Black Max, I wanted to share with you my first glossary. It needs some formatting to make it pretty but it is a start.

    Thanks for your help,
    Steve
