Would Using a Definition List for a Form Be Semantic?

  • # April 9, 2013 at 11:10 pm

    Hi there,

    So, I’ve been reading into several people’s ideas on semantics for forms and I ran across an interesting solution where a definition list was used for the form layout. [Here's](http://www.gethifi.com/blog/html-forms-the-right-ways “HTML Forms: The Right Way(s)”) the link to the article I was reading, the suggested method is #2. Now I’ve seen people use Unordered and Ordered Lists, but never a Definition List. What do you think? Would this be semantically sound?

    Thanks in advance for any input,

    -Elijah

    Hey, I gave it a read and looks interesting. However, I feel reluctant to just using labels and inputs.

    I like the idea of a Definition List within the confines mentioned…I could argue the sematics but the article does make a good point in that respect.

    Thanks for the input. I really like the idea too and I think I’m going to use it over OL/UL in my development from now on.
