HTML <dfn> Tag
As a rule, in a document, when a new term is mentioned, it is highlighted in italics and its definition is given. When using this term in the future, it is considered already known to the reader. The
<dfn> HTML element is used to highlight such terms when they first appear in the text.
Browsers typically display the contents of a
<dfn> element in italics.
