I doubt that it was ever intended for this sort of overt definition.  It is
more for.

<p>The best known big cats of the modern world are the <dfn>tiger</dfn> and
<dfn>lion</dfn>.  The tiger is a large striped cat found in Asia....</p>

When seen in print, the highlighting of tiger and lion tell the reader that
