Priority 2

Angry face: bad choice!Don't organize a list in an unstructured manner, like this:

<LI>Instruments found within the string section of a symphony orchestra:

This list was created with the DL and DT elements, which should be used for definition lists, not simply for indenting a list. Instead, use the unordered list element <UL> if this is really a list, or use CSS if all you want is the indentation provided by <DL>, for example:

<P style="text-indent: 3em">Violins</P>

will indent an item without adding any unwanted semantics to the markup.
