The builtin-long template uses a <dl> format. Personally, I put them both
into a table. See
My templates are available from the contrib section of

Yes, it's compiled in the code. At a minimum, the next major release 3.2,
will ship with the default templates on disk for easy examination and a
template_map example in the htdig.conf file (commented out since it's
faster to use the builtin ones). The next bug-fix release may ship with
this as well.

Here's the template:
<dl><dt><strong><a href=\"$(URL)\">$(TITLE)</a></strong>
<i><a href=\"$(URL)\">$(URL)</a></i>
<font size=-1>$(MODIFIED), $(SIZE) bytes</font>
