    <dl> issue

    Hey guys, looking for some help on a piece of code I'm screwing up. Just started my first programming class a month ago.
    The part is below, for some reason the <dd> lines are being indented on the finished page instead of hanging on the left margin like normal. Any help is appreciate, thanks!


    The code:

    <dl>
    <dt><strong>What is a yurt?</strong></dt>
    <dd>Our luxury yurts are permanent structures four feet off the ground. Each yurt has canvas walls, a wooden floor, and a roof dome that can be opened.</dd>
    <dt><strong>How are the yurts furnished?</strong></dt>
    <dd>Each yurt is furnished with a queen size bed with down quilt and gas-fired stove. The luxury camping experience also includes electricity and a sink with hot and cold running water. Shower and restroom facilities are located in the lodge.</dd>
    <dt><strong>What should I bring?</strong></dt>
    <dd>Bring a sense of adventure and some time to relax! Most guests also pack comfortable walking shoes and plan to pack for changing weather with layers of clothing.</dd>
    </dl>

    This is what it's doing on the finished, the indent is just there because when I first posted this, it lined up everything to the margin on here =P

    Hi there JWalden26,

    and a warm welcome to these forums.

    ...for some reason the <dd> lines are being indented on the finished page instead of hanging on the left margin like normal...
    That is the correct behaviour.

    By default he "dd element" has a "margin-left:40px" setting.

    If not required use this code...
    Code:
    
    <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01//EN"
       "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/strict.dtd">
    <html lang="en">
    <head>
    
    <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8">
    <meta name="language" content="english"> 
    <meta http-equiv="Content-Style-Type" content="text/css">
    
    <title>remove dd default margin</title>
    
    <style type="text/css">
    dt {
        font-weight:bold;
     }
    dd {
        margin-left:0;
     }
    </style>
    
    </head>
    <body>

    Whose example was incorrect, and in what way?
