<dl> elements must only directly contain properly-ordered <dt> and <dd> groups, <script>, or <template> elements

Definition lists (dl) must contain only properly-ordered dt and dd groups, script or template elements.

Screen readers have a specific way of announcing definition lists. When such lists are not properly marked up, this creates the opportunity for confusing or inaccurate screen reader output.

A definition list is used to provide the definitions of words or phrases. The Definition List is marked up using the dl element. Within the list, each term is put in a separate dt element, and its definition goes in the dd element directly following it.
