In this article, we represent the defining instance of a term by using the dfn Element, Generally, the defining instance is the first use of a term in a document. The <dfn> tag requires a starting as well as an ending tag.

Syntax:

<dfn>.....</dfn>

Below examples illustrate the dfn tag in HTML:
Example-1:




<!DOCTYPE html> 
<html
    <head
        <title>Represent the defining 
               instance of a term
        </title
    </head
    <body>
        <h2>GeeksForGeeks</h2
        <h2>HTML5: How to represent the defining
                instance of a term
        </h2>
 <p><dfn>Geeksforgeeks</dfn> is a portal for geeks.</p
    </body
</html>
