• Because the <dir> tag is supposed to be used with short lists, the items in the list
should have a maximum width of 20 characters. This is rarely if ever respected.
• The HTML and XHTML strict specifications do not support this element, and the
HTML5 specification has marked it as obsolete and suggests using a <ul> tag
• Most browsers will not render a <dir> tag any differently from the <ul> tag.
• HTML 2 and 3.2 define only the compact attribute.
• Most browsers will not render the compact list style.
• For XHTML transitional compatibility, the compact attribute must have a value:
<dir compact="compact"> .
<div> (Division)
This element indicates a generic block of content that should be treated as a logical unit for
scripting or styling purposes.
