Quite a few very old articles use dl, dd, and dt, sometimes for very large swathes of an article—at the moment, they’re not styled very well. @murtaugh, you have any links to those articles kicking around?

@Wilto I spent maybe 15 minutes looking for posts that have this, but couldn't find any. @murtaugh is there a way to search through the DB to find a <dl> to get an example or two?

Is this still in process? While we move old articles into the new system, perhaps this will become a more pronounced issue.

@mikepick, if you could take a look at this it would be great.

Not sure what to do here as it is only one instance and I'm thinking that other instances may be different content contexts (which is why using DL as a catch-all for paired lists is dumb.)

What is the default or general style for these? That's what I would go with, just so they don't look quite so unstyled.

Here's the dl in my example link in the previous layout:

The problem in http://alistapart.com/article/business1 seems to be there’s a whole bunch of &nbsp;s before each dd. (i.e., outside the dt/dd pairs) This is causing some weird spacing between the rows.

There’s obviously additional style work that could happen, but it seems like a quick fix would be to clean up the article markup.

Closing, as this is an evolution of development, rather than a bug.
