Is there a special HTML tag for introducing a new term or new vocabulary?

In text books you will often see a new term introduced in a special way (bold, italics, or single quotes for example). Obviously I know how to achieve that effect in HTML/CSS but is there a special tag which does this in a more semantic way? Thanks

I know there are existing tags allowing you to define terms, the dt & dl tags... I don't know if there is another one more suitable for what you need. check here for dl & dt tags !

Hope it helps.
