Actually there can be cases, where there are several terms sharing one
definition. The above scheme can't handle such cases very gracefully. We
need something like this:

 <dl>
    <def>
      <dt>bla</dt>
      <dt>bli</dt>
      <dt>blu</dt>
      <dd>Yada yada yada</dd>
    <def>
    <def>
      <dt>ya</dt>
      <dt>yi</dt>
      <dd>Bada bada bada</dd>
      [...]
    </def>
 </dl>
