# \description

## Summary

The instances of \description are defined by \definedescription

## Settings example

 \DESCRIPTION[...,...]{...} ... \par [...,...] reference {...} text ... content \par delimiter

## Description

Actually there is no predefined command \description. Instead, you can use \definedescription to define a command (whose name is arbitrary) to typeset a headword as distinct from its description.

Note: You can use \par to separate the items, but a better idea is to use the startdescription form of the defined instance.

## Examples

### Example 1

```\definedescription[description][location=top,headstyle=bold]
\description{icon}
An icon is a representation of an action or the name of a computer
program. Icons are frequently used in operating systems on several
computer platforms. \par
