Floating the <dd>s too should solve it in FF, but Opera7.54 ignores that
float rule 5 and would float the <dd> upwards (fixed in recent Opera beta).
I do not know if it is possible to have "term and and definition always
side-by-side and vertically aligned on the same first line" in Zoe's
scenario, where there isn't a <dd> for each <dt>.
My attempt of an equal heights <dd> and <dt> is to float the <dt> and to
clear this float in a dd:after rule (similar to the clearfix method).
Does work in FF, Opera7.54-8 here. And IE6. Does not work in MacIE, of
course, and does not tolerate omitting the <dd> on principle.
I'm testing this method here: http://www.satzansatz.de/cssd/tmp/dltest.html
Don't know if it's of any use, though, I'm using it for link lists.
