ElementDIR
Purposedirectory list
DescriptionThis element encloses a directory list. The intent is that DIR creates lists of short items. Browsers would render this list in a series of columns. The appearance would therefore be more compact than a list made using LI. However, the DIR element was never rendered differently in many browsers and was rarely used. Use UL instead.
Start tagRequired <DIR>
