Real-world example:

<th scope="row">
    <div><a href="#">Example preparation</a></div>
    <dl>
        <dt><abbr title="International nonproprietary name">INN</abbr>:</dt>
        <dd><a href="#">Example nonproprietary name</a></dd>
    </dl>
</th>

Example preparation is a preparation title.
INN is (sematically) DL and, by visual design, is placed inside TH after
preparation title.

Moreover, both preparation title and international nonproprietary name are
heading content, and so should be placed inside TH.

In XHTML 1.0, this is perfectly valid.
