Contained in DL

The DT element defines a term in a definition list. The closing tag for DT is optional, but its use prevents common browser bugs with style sheets. Note that DT cannot contain block-level elements such as P and H2.

A DT element should generally be followed by a DD element that provides the definition for the term given by the DT. A single definition term may have multiple definitions associated with it, and a single definition may have multiple terms.
