Description

From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:0.9.9) Gecko/20020311
BuildID:    2002031104

I have a div set to justify text.  The definition list in that div does not work
- it comes up as a big block of text.  Other lists however (UL, OL) retain their
formatting.  After I put the definition list in a table it regained its
formatting, including the spaces between the dt and dd tags that wasn't there
before and should not have been alignment-related.  While the table is gone, css
styles aren't recognized for specific parts of the list (as in just the dt tag)
and affect the entire list.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.create a justified div tag
2.make a definition list inside that tag
3.viola.

Actual Results:  Definition list came up as a big block of text, similiar to this:

Koala
A marsupial in Australia.

Expected Results:  List should override the justify like other lists do, and
look like this:

Kaoala

      A Marsupial in Australia.

Bug does not occur when not in a justified div tag - this same list works under
different themes that don't have the justification.
