HTML Question

Can I put anything inside DL/DT/DDs?

can I use definition lists just like unordered/ordered lists?

I mean insert DIVs any anything I want inside DT or DD?


Do any browsers, or search engines complain?

Updated answer based on comments:

This was originally answered in 2011 for HTML 4, but the answer is different for HTML5:

dt Flow content, but with no header, footer, sectioning content, or heading content descendants. dd Flow content.

Original answer:

DT elements should contain inline content.
DD elements should contain block-level content.

Definition lists vary only slightly from other types of lists in that list items consist of two parts: a term and a description. The term is given by the DT element and is restricted to inline content. The description is given with a DD element that contains block-level content.
