    Of vs for

    I have been mulling over what the correct word to substitute would be in the following phrase:

    The description of this event is located... or
    The description for this event is located...

    I have my own opinion on what sounds right, but I would like to know grammatically which one is correct, especially in this context (where Description is a section on the web).

    Thanks in advance

    For sounds better to me, but what I guess I'm asking is if you could use both in this context, or is one correct and one wrong?

    Re: Of vs for

    I would use "of". It is more natural.
