I am trying to remove (reduce) the line space between the term and the 
definition in a definition list.  I have tried the COMPACT attribute 
with the <DL> tag and it does not accomplish this (maybe due to the 
browser?).  Any ideas? (The browser is Netscape 1.2).

ex,
-----------------------
<DL COMPACT>
<DT> Tag1
<DD> The text for Tag1
<DT> Tag2
<DD> The text for Tag2
</DL>
-----------------------
looks like,
-----------------------
Tag1

      The text for Tag1

Tag2

      The text for Tag2
-----------------------
and I would prefer it look something like,
-----------------------
Tag1
      The text for Tag1

Tag2
      The text for Tag2

-----------------------

Thanks in advance,
