I was wondering what is the general consensus for display Key/Item pairs (or
"name/value") in (X)HTML?
e.g.
Name: T. Daniel
Occupation: Web Developer
Favorite Ice Cream: chocolate

I've heard some say this is a good use for tables, some say that <dl> is
better for something like this. I could argue either way, I just wanted to
gather some more opinions.
