Subject: Re: [dita] Rationale for content model of definition list entry


My understanding is that it applies to a use case such as when a company has made acquisitions and the new division/subsidiary/etc has been using a different term to define a concept that the acquiring company already has a specified term for.  I vaguely remember Rational and then IBM having this situation.

I was asked about the content model for definition lists this past week.

Why does the content model for <dlentry> allow multiple instances of <dt>? I can understand multiple instances of <dd> -- a term often has multiple definitions -- but a use case for multiple (primary) terms eludes me.

FWIW, the content model for <dlhd> only permits zero or one <dthead> and zero or one <ddhd>.
