Description Sandro Tosi 2006-09-09 11:08:33 UTC
I've summarized in the webpage the
error we recieve while nesting two (or more) definition lists.

The first element of the nested definition list is wrongly rendered, with the
head element at the same level as father def list, and the  definition in bold.

The same bugs is in mw1.6.7 and
in mw1.5.8

It's not rendering because you're using the wrong syntax.  A definition list in
a definition list must be inside the outer list's <dd> element, since <dt> can
only have inline contents.  Therefore, the right syntax has the nested list's
character follow after a colon (<dd>), not after a semicolon (<dt>):

; test1: level 1
:; test2_1: level 2, first row
:; test2_2: level 2, second row

That works fine.
