Add support for <dl> HTML definition lists in Remarkup
Closed, WontfixPublic

See here for more info on definition list syntax:

What do you want to type into a text field to produce a definition list? (I can't immediately find any syntax in Markdown.)

It looks like Mediawiki uses this syntax:


I suppose we could do the same. That syntax isn't super friendly for avoiding false positives in discussion of source code, but probably not terrible.

This request seems very niche, so I don't currently plan to pursue this. It may be possible to implement it as an extension.
