Changed UL to DL

The documentation page contains a set of definitions. There are four properties to be defined. The syntax I corrected used an unnumbered list with the property name bold. This was not bad, but using a definition list is better, because this is what a definition list is for, while an unnumbered list is commonly used to express alternatives. --Yecril71pl 18:52, 24 September 2010 (MDT)

I'm afraid you just broke the list - it doesn't show up anymore. I reverted the syntax to Mediawiki syntax.

I am not sure what you mean by broke. I am pasting my code for reference:
{{Navbar|TITLE=[[Main Page]]|CONTENT=[[Page1]] - [[Page2]] - [[Page3]] - [[Page4]]}}
Navigation bar for pages that belong together.
Not used directly in the article, but as aid to create navbar templates for article groups, that will be placed on top of the articles before any other content. See real templates as examples.
This template is good for topics that include few articles, where few is not more then 1 line, or up to seven entries, not for multilayered stacks of topics organized in a tree. For large topics with complex tree organization we must use categories and present them in the articles using category tree.
What is wrong with the display above? I can see the text and the structure all right.
As per your requirement of using wikitext, I am; the tags are wikitags and are part of wikitext. What do you have against them?

Please avoid adding HTML tag inside templates when this is unnecessary as it is more difficult to read/maintain. Use wiki tags. Also, please do not broke consistency across the dozen of templates, thx! --Spyhawk 03:04, 25 September 2010 (MDT)
