The default HTML stylesheet provided by the CSS 2.1 specification[1] does
not provide a distinguished rendering for DFN elements.  I think this is
wrong; occurrences of term definitions should be prominent and easy to find
in the running text.  You could have

DFN { color: black; background: yellow }

-for a draft or a handout, and

DFN { font-weight: bolder }

-for a printed book.

Don't you think?

Chris
