I'm trying to devise some guidance about how to mark up interviews in 
HTML 4.01, but am running across some practical issues that are relevant 
to HTML5's DIALOG element.

Here's some real-world content:

http://observer.guardian.co.uk/omm/story/0,,1349947,00.html

Note that some of the dicta consist of more than one paragraph (see the 
question: "But hanging back a bit was a conscious choice, right?").

I'm wondering whether:

<dt>Jack White</dt>
<dd>foobar<p>baz</p><p>quux</p></dd>

is equivalent to or different to:

<dt>Jack White</dt>
<dd><p>foobar</p><p>baz</p><p>quux</p></dd>

and whether

<dt>Jack White</dt>
<dd>foobar</dd>

is equivalent to or different to:

<dt>Jack White</dt>
<dd><p>foobar</p></dd>

Does DD have an implicit P, much as it has an implicit Q/BLOCKQUOTE?

Many thanks
