The example contained error in the stylesheet, the style rule:

     dt.only-child,
     dl.only-child { margin-top: 1em; margin-bottom: 1em }

should read:

     dt.only-child,
     dd.only-child { margin-top: 1em; margin-bottom: 1em }

(mistyped "dl" -> "dd)

Thus the example shows for DD elements only the bottom margin 
doesn't collapse. I'm attaching one more "inter-DL" example.
