The <DL> Tag

      <DT> Title for Group 1
        <DD> First in Group 1
        <DD> Second in Group 1
      <DT> Title for Group 2
        <DD> First in Group 2
The DL tag, used in conjunction with the DD and DT tags create lists that contain no numbering or dotting scheme. This is useful for when you want to use your own graphics as bullets, such as:
<DD><IMG SRC="bullet.gif"> First in Group 1
It is best to keep your text as short as possible as wrapped text is not indented.

You can also use DL with the COMPACT attribute, <DL COMPACT> which will tell the browser to squeeze the list when possible. This is good for side bar menu links.
