The Definition Lists extension adds the ability to create definition lists in Markdown documents.
This extension is included in the standard Markdown library.
Definition lists are defined using the syntax established in PHP Markdown Extra.
Thus, the following text (taken from the above referenced PHP documentation):
Apple : Pomaceous fruit of plants of the genus Malus in the family Rosaceae. Orange : The fruit of an evergreen tree of the genus Citrus.
will be rendered as:
<dl> <dt>Apple</dt> <dd>Pomaceous fruit of plants of the genus Malus in the family Rosaceae.</dd> <dt>Orange</dt> <dd>The fruit of an evergreen tree of the genus Citrus.</dd> </dl>
See Extensions for general extension usage, specify
markdown.extensions.def_list as the name of the extension.
This extension does not accept any special configuration options.
