I love this structure:
<dl> <dt>Animals</dt> <dd>
– Kevin Marks on [whatwg] List captions
It seems more correct than the alternative he proposes (with each of the li’s here as dd’s) in that the list is an ostensive definition, whereas each of the items is a mere example. Practically, it saves me from having to deal with some lousy CSS on nested lists. And it does feel more semantic-ish than the nested list (for this case) anyway, and certainly better than the usual headings or paragraphs inside lists.
