DL = definition LIST

Just like you have multiple bullet points in a UL or OL, you can have
multiple entries in a DL. It's a perfectly valid use.

Subject: [WSG] dl question

Hi all,

I was under the impression a <dl> could only contain one <dt> and one  
or many <dd>'s.....

But I have just come across a piece of code that uses multiple <dt>'s  
in the one <dl>....

Upon further investigation, it seems this is legitimate  
practice....but does it make sense?!?!

Semantically, isn't the whole point of a <dl> to use definition data  
tags (<dd>'s) to describe a definition title (<dt>)!? Does it make  
sense to have multiple definition titles in the same <dl>?! Or does it  
make more sense to have a seperate <dl> for each <dt>??
