Thank you for your prompt reply, but you've failed to explain or
provide evidence to support your conclusion. (Although I don't need to
tell you that, since you chose to reply with one line.) I still
disagree. Unintuitive names are not an infinite evil. Without reading
a specification, viewing representative examples, or reading a
tutorial, no one is going to divine the correct meaning of XHTML's
elements. That will not change if you rename dl/dt/dd.
