This page is a place holder for examples of how people currently collect questions and answers


NOTE: These examples need actual markup placed inline with summary analysis of their implied schemas. See hlisting-examples for example. See also Best Practices for Examples Pages for more on how to do this.

The Firefox faq is marked up with <dl> as is the old Mozilla 1.5 FAQ: Both of them are separated into sections and have tables of contents.

For the W3C XHTML faq, the table of contents is in an ordered list, and contains urls that point to the question/answer fragments below. The question answer fragments are an h3 element paired with one or more p elements.

For the Brainstorms and Raves article on HTML, XHTML, and Structure, the faq is definition list enclosed in a div element of the class faq. Questions are inside of dt elements, and answers inside of dd elements. If a question has multiple answers, there would be a seperate dd element for each answer.


NOTE: This should really be moved to qa-formats.

DocBook has a <qandaset> element which is used with <question> and <answer> elements, and optionally <qandadiv> elements.
