Hi all,

How have you been?

I'm kind of confused by the use of sectioning elements and description list
(DL).

The example of "A <section> containing <article>s" section in an
HTML5Doctor post (http://html5doctor.com/the-article-element/) uses Article
elements to wrap all fruits. But isn't DL a better choice in this situation?

My main question is: when there are multiple "item-like" contents, and each
has a heading and some explanatory sub-contents consists of paragraphs and
hyperlinks, which element should be used, sectioning elements or DL?


Sincerely,
Ian
