Ahh! This is how I change this!
<table id="entries"><tbody><tr><td class="word">Zaff </td> <td class="tools" id="tools_2990784">
</td> </tr> <tr> <td>
</td> <td class="text" colspan="2"> Zaff (zaf) adj. is used to describe a person who either looks or acts like Fogel, from the movie Superbad, when under the alias McLovin (i.e. when using his fake ID) Which makes the person an awesome and intense BAMF.
adjective;

Example 1.

"Yo, dude look at that guy... he's a Zaff!"

noun; Same meaning as the adjective, just used in noun form.

Example 2.

"Hah, he is Zaff... he is McLovin!"
</td></tr></tbody></table>
