    This is going to go onsite, so I have moved the thread to C&C.

    I need to work out the specifics for how it's going to appear for the lists so any input would be gladly appreciated. (on the HTML).

    What we can probably do is something like this:

    HTML:
    <p>channel stuff</p>
    
    <dl>
    <dt>Founder(s)</dt>
    <dd>-</dd>
    <dd>-</dd>
    <dt>SOps</dt>
    <dd>-</dd>
    <dd>-</dd>
    <dt>etc.</dt>
    </dl>
