Yikes, I must have been using iffy mark-up all this time!  Will you
make your test page available?   I'm looking at a page with just a
single digit in the DT of a COMPACT list and both IE 3 and 5.5 show
the DD part on the next line.

See http://www.ppig.org/workshops/9th-programme.html (papers listed
in a compact DL list, with the paper numbers defined by the DT tag).
