If you don't question the sense of two or more definitions (and I mean
_definitions_) for one term, I propose an extended usage of the old definition
list like


     <dl>

          <dt>foo</dt>
          <dd>bar 1</dd>
          <dd>bar 2</dd>

          <dt>mickey</dt>
          <dd>mouse</dd>

     </dl>


Regards,
 Jens Meiert.
