Chris, the one biiiiig problem I understand with DL for dialogue is
that it does not describe order. Or at least, that's the
interpretation/specification being put forward by the WHATWG in
WebApps 1.0[1] and goes so far as to explicitly note DL as being
inappropriate for mark-up.

Since chronology is vital to describing dialogue, Kevin Marks
OL+CITE+Q|BLOCKQUOTE example works much better for me. Appealingly it
also uses the same number of HTML elements as using the DL example.
