Tags to Represent Questions

Hi Everyone,

Sorry if my question sounds a little basic but I need to figure out what the
best way in building accessible FAQ pages.

I'm trying to find a best way to tag the question and answer that can be
understood by the screen readers. At first I thought about using the <p>
tag for both questions and answers. But then I thought the questions are
not really a paragraph but perhaps there is something that can represent the
question better than using the <p> tags. Is there a better way to represent
the question to inform the screen reader that a question is between the
tags? Many thanks for any information.

Take care,
Randy Pope
