i'd suggest you validate your page at the w3c validator...

you can upload files if they're not posted anywhere so you don't have to worry
about hosting space or exposing the files to the world...

also, if you have questions about what elements are legal and what aren't, just
peruse the specs at the W3c site:


the definition list is valid...  syntax and proper use can be found at:

this isn't supposed to be an RTFM post, but ultimately, if you fall back to the
W3c site for validation and code references, you'll be pretty well set...
